- Markets rallied after PBoC Gov Zhou said China would expand its investments in Europe, saying that China has not cut its reserve exposure to Europe during the crisis. Zhou affirmed that China would play a bigger role in the crisis through participation in EFSF and IMF, saying it can assist through the Central Bank and sovereign wealth fund.
