China will seek to improve the flexibility of its yuan currency and will reduce restrictions on cross-border use of the yuan, the country's central bank governor Yi Gang said on Saturday.

Yi said such moves were needed to promote the opening of the country's financial services industry. He was speaking at the Bund Summit conference held in Shanghai.

China will “improve flexibility of the yuan, and let exchange rates play a better role as an automatic stabilizer in the macro economy and international balance of payments,” he said.

To promote yuan internationalisation, China will further improve the infrastructure for cross-border use of the yuan, he said.

China plans to expand several outbound investment schemes to meet onshore investors' need to allocate assets globally, said media reports, following a steady strengthening in the yuan against the dollar.
