State Researcher Says China Should Expand Local Bond Sales, Daily Reports

China’s local governments should be allowed to expand their use of bond sales as a way of raising funds to make their debt more transparent, China Daily cited Jia Kang, head of the Ministry of Finance’s research institute, as saying.

China needs to modify its budget laws and regulatory rules to allow local governments to sell more bonds, Jia said, according to the report.

Local governments have been allowed to sell bonds since 2009 only in limited amounts, the report said.
