SHANGHAI (Reuters) - China’s central bank said on Thursday it will deploy at least 10 billion yuan ($1.44 billion) worth of relending quota to private and small companies in Shanghai, in sectors such as high-tech and high-end manufacturing as part of its effort to support the private sector.

The People’s Bank of China’s Shanghai Head Office said in a statement that it will support funding to private companies via bill financing, and that it will support debt issuance by private firms using credit risk mitigation tools.
