Ways to solve the problem
Since the economic reforms at the end of 1978, high investment rates and domestic household savings rates have served as the key elements driving economic development in China. Investors trust the government and people like to save their money into banks for more security. Banks in China promised to keep the stable interest rate of deposit. The deposit interest rate was high because Chinese government encouraged people to put their money in banks. Chinese economic policy allowed foreign investors to invest firms and made profits, but it not allowed convertible money at this time. The exchange rate is not very high in the earlier time, and it was controlled by the central government. With the growth of economy, high interest rate of residents’ deposits causes some problems. Recently, government lowers the interest rate to encourage people to increase consumptions. The policy changes with the development of economics environment.
