Market Summaries

People’s Republic of China

Local currency (LCY) bonds outstanding in the People’s Republic of China (PRC) grew 3.9% quarter-on-quarter (q-o-q) in the fourth quarter (Q4) of 2021 to reach CNY115.1 trillion (USD18.1 trillion). The q-o-q growth in bonds outstanding was roughly stable as the government continued borrowing to help arrest a slowdown in the PRC’s economy. Local governments saw an increase in the growth rate of their bonds outstanding to 5.8% q-o-q in Q4 2021 from 4.9% q-o-q in the previous quarter. The accelerated pace of expansion was driven by efforts to complete their full-year bond quotas. The PRC’s LCY bonds outstanding rose 13.6% year-on-year (y-o-y) in Q4 2021, up from 12.8% y-o-y in the third quarter of 2021.
