BEIJING - China's Ministry of Finance (MOF) said Wednesday it will sell 30 billion yuan ($4.53 billion) of book-entry Treasury bonds this week.
The one-year bonds have a fixed annual interest rate of 2.81 percent, the ministry said in a statement on its website.
The bonds will be sold from Thursday to next Monday and become tradable on the exchange markets from next Wednesday.
Interest on the bonds will be paid when the notes mature on Jan 13, 2012.
The bonds will be the ministry's first issue of book-entry Treasury bonds this year.
