BEIJING, July 23 (Xinhua) — China’s Ministry of Finance (MOF) issued 5 billion yuan (about 715.31 million U.S. dollars) worth of yuan-denominated treasury bonds to the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Thursday.

The bonds, targeting institutional investors, included 4 billion yuan of two-year treasury bonds and 1 billion yuan of five-year treasury bonds, the MOF said in a statement.
