China's net-gold imports via main conduit Hong Kong more than doubled month-on-month in March, data showed on Tuesday.

Net-gold imports by the world's top gold consumer through the port of Hong Kong rose to 111.647 tonnes in March from 47.931 tonnes in February, according to data emailed to Reuters by the Hong Kong Census and Statistics Department.

Total gold imports rose to 116.68 tonnes in March from 49.026 tonnes in February.

China allows only 13 banks, including three foreign lenders, to import gold, according to the Shanghai Gold Exchange.
