China Investment Corp has requested more money from the government because it has depleted its current pool of capital, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Wang also said at the conference that the large amount of US dollar-denominated assets in the country’s foreign-exchange reserves posed more of a risk than the value of the US dollar or US Treasuries per se.
