[BEIJING] China will impose restrictions on the import and export of gold and gold products in accordance with macroeconomic requirements, the country's central bank said on Thursday.

It also said that firms engaging in gold imports and exports bear a responsibility to maintain a balance in supply and demand on the domestic market, and trades need to be registered with gold exchanges approved by the State Council, China's cabinet.
