From January 1, 2013, credit investment in underdeveloped rural areas should grow faster than in other areas in China, according to a notice issued by the China Banking Regulatory Commission.
The targeted areas include ethnic minority areas, border regions and areas with relatively high levels of poverty, according to the notice.
The CBRC urged financial institutions to inject more funding into grain production, agricultural technology and infrastructure construction in rural areas.
