China’s cabinet curbs debt growth in 12 “high risk” regions


Reuters exclusively reported China’s cabinet has restricted the ability of local governments in 12 heavily indebted regions to take on new debt and placed limits on what new state-funded projects they can launch. 

Market Impact

Local government debt loads are far higher than at the central government level. While central government debt is only 21% OF GDP, local debt reached 92 trillion yuan ($12.58 trillion), or 76% of the country’s economic output in 2022, up from 62.2% in 2019. The massive piles of debt highlights local governments’ financial stress, fueling concerns of a systemic financial crisis.
