BEIJING -- China's central bank on Friday continued to pump cash into the banking system via reverse repos to maintain liquidity.

The People's Bank of China injected 90 billion yuan (about $13.2 billion) into the market through seven-day reverse repos at an interest rate of 2.2 percent, according to a statement on the website of the central bank.

The move was intended to maintain reasonable and ample liquidity in the banking system, the central bank said.

A reverse repo is a process in which the central bank purchases securities from commercial banks through bidding, with an agreement to sell them back in the future.

China pursues a prudent monetary policy in a more flexible and appropriate way, according to this year's government work report.
