BEIJING, Jan. 13 -- The People's Bank of China (PBOC), the central bank, announced on Tuesday to raise the deposit reserve requirement ratio by 0.5 percentage points from Jan. 18 this year.

The ratio at small financial institutions such as the rural credit cooperatives would remain unchanged to support the agriculture sector, the PBOC said in a statement.

This is the first time that the PBOC adjusted the ratio of deposit that lenders are required to set aside since the end of 2008 and the first increase for the ratio since June of 2008.

The PBOC has cut the bank reserve requirement ratio for four times in the second half of 2008 to stimulate growth as the global financial crisis started to weigh on the economy.
