SHANGHAI (Reuters) - China’s central bank is planning to develop an over-the-counter (OTC) business for local government bonds in the interbank market, in what it said was a move to encourage the market’s development and meet investor demand.

In a notice posted on its website on Thursday, the People’s Bank of China (PBOC) said it would encourage local government bonds to target purchase and trade by local investors.
