  • RBA warns on heightened level of property investment risk

    The RBA deputy governor Philip Lowe says recent measures from banking regulator, the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) were having a "positive, albeit modest, effect". "In the past couple of weeks you've seen a number of banks say they're requiring larger deposits for investor loans, they're offering smaller discounts on interest rates and smaller rebates, they're requiring higher serviceability levels," Dr Lowe said at yesterday's Thomson Reuters regulatory summit in Sydney.

  • China deployed artillery in S.China Sea: US officials

    China recently deployed two artillery pieces on one of its artificial islands in the contested South China Sea, US defense officials said Friday, in an unprecedented move that will heighten suspicion of Beijing's intentions. The heavy weapons, since removed, posed no security threat but their positioning -- within range of territory claimed by Vietnam -- underscored Washington's concerns that China is pursuing a huge island-building project for military purposes, officials said. The two motorized artillery pieces were spotted on a manmade island about a month ago in the Spratly Islands, a defense official who spoke on condition of anonymity told AFP, citing surveillance imagery.
