May. 9, 2012 (China Knowledge) - The Monetary Authority of Hong Kong (or HKMA), Hong Kong's de facto central bank, has said that the official foreign currency reserve assets in the special administrative region had reached US$295.6 billion at the end of April, having increased by US$1 billion from March.

Including unsettled forward contracts, the city's forex reserves were US$295.6 billion at the end of last month.

The US$295.6 billion in reserves is more than eight times the amount of currency in circulation in Hong Kong, and accounts for about 55% of Hong Kong's M3.

The fund's foreign currency assets increased by HK$17.5 billion, while its Hong Kong dollar assets decreased by HK$15.9 billion in March.
