In January P Global 上海千花网tings, a companyet for

wholly-owned by the leading global ratings firm, was granted access into China’s interba

上海千花网nk bond market for all forms of credit rating businesses, covering financial institution bonds, non-fin

ancial corporate debt financing instruments, structured products and offshore bonds.上海千花网女神会所

According to the PBOC, introducing international credit rating agencies to conduct ratings in China is conducive to meeti

上海千花网ng the diverse needs of international investors and improving the quality of China’s rating industry.

The PBOC said it would, together with the country‘s securities regulato

ting agencies to develop businesses in China’s inter-bank and exchange bond market.上海千花网

上海千花网女神会所Giving the green light to foreign-funded institutions to obtain type-A major underwritin

As of now, a total of six foreign-funded banks have obtained type-B qualifications for major

上海千花网女神会所underwriting and underwriting business of non-financial enterprise debt financing instruments.

The permission for type-A major underwriting business will help enri上海千花网

China will facilitate foreign institutional investors in investing in the inter-bank bond m上海千花网女神会所

arket, which was included in the new measures to optimize the opening-up of the financial sector.

“In order to achieve this, it is necessary to integrate policies and requirements regardin

上海千花网g different open channels and link up accounts of bond and capital,” said the official.

By satisfying the differentiated needs of investors, the measure will improve the convenience for foreign investors to invest in the上海千花网女神会所

market, which reflects the high-level opening-up required for the financial market, the official added.

A possible measure to reduce the hidden debt wou

uld be to separate the government-owned assets from that of the companies and let the State-owned businesses run by thems

elves, said experts close to the matter. This is particularly so for some public and infrastructure construction proj

Experts said the minister‘s viewpoint is a signal that the authori

ties are determined to solve the vexed debt issue with more details set to emerge later and star

t a national campaign for preventing systemic financial risks, amid rising external trade challenges.

Other measures could include selling part of the State-owned assets, rest

ructuring the State-owned enterprises, or reorganizing projects, said Liu.
