- Public-Private-Partnership (PPP) has become increasingly popular in China. A government-led fund worth 180 billion yuan will be set up by the end of Marchin the effort of promoting PPP projects. PPP refers to cooperation between government agencies and private companies on projects focusing on infrastructure and public services. Normally, PPP projects are funded by private companies and supervised by government agencies. The PPP model is considered as a substitution of traditional government’s borrowings for infrastructure projects. It helps the government to reduce the burden on spending and also provides business opportunities to private companies in a slowing economy.

- China’s Finance Ministry released the fiscal data of the first two months in 2016. The total fiscal income was 2.739 trillion yuan, rising 6.3% from a year ago. Government spending was 2.117 trillion yuan, increasing by 12%. The readings indicate that China has been adopting a proactive fiscal policy.

- China’s banking regulator, Shang Fulin, said launching debt/equity swaps with a broad scope requires a series of policy and technical supports. Last week, Chinese media reported that the Central Bank will soon allow commercial banks to swap non-performing loans of companies to stocks in these companies. This is seen as a solution to help banks to reduce their non-performing loans while also helping companies to reduce debts. On March 8, China’s largest private shipyard, Huarong Energy, announced that it plans to issue up to 17.1 billion shares of stocks to its creditors (22 banks and 1000 suppliers), in the effort to offset its 17.1 billion debts.
