He foresees potential production shortfalls as more central banks turn from being net sellers to buyers of gold, pushing the supply-demand balance out of kilter.there will be a lot of gold buying going on in China cause the Central Bank in China has less than 2 percent of foreign exchange reserves are actually held in gold they want to be a real world central bank and for this they need to buy a lot of gold , China central bank may need 6000 tons of gold to bring its gold holding to the world average and that's more than two years of mined production in the world
