(Bloomberg) -- People’s Bank of China’s Party Chief Guo Shuqing said the country’s interbank market should strengthen self-discipline and better balance risk control with development.

The interbank market faces new challenges with shifts in China’s economy as global conditions change, and it should be more market-oriented, Guo said during a visit to the National Association of Financial Market Institutional Investors Friday, according to a statement published on the PBOC website Saturday.
