"The new yuan loans in August is expected to be less than that in July," an unidentified person in charge of credit at a state-own bank was quoted as saying.
Chinese financial institutions issued CNY492.6 billion ($77.07 billion) worth of new yuan loans in July, down from CNY633.9 billion ($99.18 billion) in June and below economists' expectations of CNY555 billion ($86.83 billion).
