BEIJING (Reuters) – Bank of China Ltd announced Friday that it had agreed to provide credit lines totaling more than 600 billion yuan ($83.8 billion) to 10 property developers, including Vanke and Country Garden.

The move came as China’s state-owned banks took efforts to respond to Beijing’s call to ease a liquidity crisis in the embattled property sector.
