Do we have to use "has" in the second part of the sentence when we use it in the first part?

For example

The central bank of China has cut its daily reference rate by 1.9 percent and made its biggest downward adjustment since 1994.

Do I have to say has made instead of made?

No, you do not. This construction implies that the entire phrase that follows has was completed in the past -- the central bank has done this and that. You can optionally include has if you want to emphasize the two separate actions.
