BEIJING (AFP) - Chinas central bank governor on Tuesday voiced concern at problems such as speculative fund inflows into the economy and rising inflation, leading the stock market to fall four percent. The comments added to a chorus of criticism by Chinese officials that monetary stimu-lus policies taken by the United States might lead to damaging fund flows and trigger inflation. The economic recovery in developed nations is slowing, resulting in continuously loose monetary conditions, Zhou Xiaochuan said at a financial forum in Beijing, according to Dow Jones Newswires. Some emerging markets are facing certain pressure of capital inflows. China also faces some problems in its economy, such as the need to continue to boost residents income and improve the structure of the economy, while all industries need to pay attention to rising price pressures, he said. The benchmark Shanghai Composite Index closed down 3.98 percent at 2,894.54, its lowest closing level in about a month. On Friday it plunged more than five percent follow-ing data showing that cons-umer prices rose 4.4pc in Oct. Analysts said investors were selling off amid concerns about possible further monetary tightening, as Zhous comm-ents fuelled expectations of another interest rate hike. It could be Zhous comments giving markets the jitters though we earlier expe-cted the market to consolidate around the 2,900 level after the strong gains in recent weeks, said Zhang Gang, an analyst from Central China Securities. China and other emerging economies worry that much of the new US money will flood their financial markets, as traders seek higher non-dollar returns. Speculative hot money inflows are considered risky because they often flow out of an economy again on the first sign of weakness, exacerbating any problems. Excessive inflows of funds complicate Beijings efforts to mop up the liquidity that is pushing up domestic asset prices and fuelling inflation. The latter has accelerated to its fastest pace in almost two years. China announced last month its first rate hike since 2007, which analysts said laid bare official fears over surging prices.
