China’s top economic planning agency has granted approvals to a number of mainland companies to sell bonds overseas, according to bankers with knowledge of the matter, a move that will help keep the record pace of issuance alive.

Some of the quotas from the National Development and Reform Commission expire in March instead of at year end, said the bankers who aren’t authorized to speak publicly and asked not to be identified. Officials at the NDRC weren’t immediately able to comment.
