"In 2011, the opening-up of the bond market to overseas investors will be further accelerated, as cross-border trade settlements in yuan increase and the number of foreign holders of the yuan rises," said the bank.

The PBOC predicted that the range and number of enterprises that gain funds through the financial markets will further increase, while stock and bond issuance and trading volumes will also rise.
