China seeks to raise foreign ownership limits to 51 percent in securities, fund management, futures and life insurance companies "over the next few months," the PBOC said in a statement on its website.

INSURANCE SECTOR MEASURES
The government also says it will not set the limits for investment by the end of 2018, the PBOC said.
However, despite the fact that China's financial services sector is currently under construction, it has a long-term growth in the past year commanding presence in those businesses.
China said on Wednesday that it would be accelerating in November to lift the foreign ownership of life insurance companies.
China wants to raise the ownership limit to 51 percent within a few months, and fully scrap the restriction in three years. In November, China said it would lift the limit to 51 percent goal in three years and fully remove them after five years.
The government also wants to remove a requirement that foreign
insurers must have a representative office in China for two years before they can set up a company, further easing foreign access to the insurance sector.
On trade, Yi said China and the United States should deal with their issues in a rational way and that the China-U.S. goods and services trade should balance out in future.
