The PBC and SAFE took some temporary measures to limit buying foreign for some capital account transactions in 1998 according to the special situation at that time.

When examining and approving the application of foreign exchange purchase, each branch of SAFE shall adhere to principle of enterprise's application. In order to prevent large scale mass purchase, approval shall be made by stages and in groups.

With the approval of SAFE, following advance repayments can be made: 1) those approved by the State Council; 2) those needed for debt rearrangement, closure, suspend, merger, or shifting of the enterprise due to policy adjustments; 3) those pronounced by the court.
3. Relax the limitation on buying foreign exchange for overseas investment. Foreign exchange needed for strategic overseas investment (approved by the State Council), processing project with exported materials, and foreign aid project may be purchased.
