China, Japan, S Korea reach agreement on distribution ratio of regional reserve pool

China, Japan, and South Korea have reached an agreement on the distribution ratio of a 120-billion-U.S. dollar regional foreign-exchange reserve pool plan in Bali, Indonesia on Sunday.

China, Japan, and South Korea will contribute to the pool on a 2:2:1 ratio, namely 38.4 billion U.S. dollars from China and Japan each and 19.2 billion from South Korea.

The agreement on the reserve pool, established to help countries tackle a possible foreign capital flow shortage, was reached at a meeting of finance ministers of the three countries on Sunday.

At the meeting, the ministers vowed to enhance regional economic and financial cooperation under current circumstances, and make due efforts to the regional financial stability and economic revival.

The committed contribution from the three countries made up 80 percent of the 120-billion-U.S. dollars pool.

Financial ministers from the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and Japan, China and South Korea (10+3) decided in February to increase the size of the reserve pool to 120 billion U.S. dollars from 80 billion.

The reserve pool was established on basis of Chiang Mai initiative, a bilateral currency swap arrangement introduced in May 2007.
