BEIJING -- China's new yuan-denominated lending in September stood at 623.2 billion yuan ($98.45 billion), an increase of 153.9 billion yuan from a year earlier, the People's Bank of China, the central bank, announced on Friday.

In the first three quarters, the nation's social financing added up to 11.73 trillion yuan, up 1.92 trillion yuan year-on-year, the data showed.
