China Local Governments’ Income from Land Sales Crumbled in 2022

A growing number of Chinese local government financing vehicles (LGFVs) are failing to repay money they owe suppliers in the form of commercial paper debt, according to some analysts, underscoring growing financial stress among companies raising funds to support infrastructure investment.

At the end of August, 43 LGFVs — including parent companies and subsidiaries — had failed to redeem maturing commercial paper at least three times over the previous six months, analysts at Lianhe Credit Investment Consulting Co. Ltd., a consultancy, wrote in a note last week based on data from Shanghai Commercial Paper Exchange. That’s up from 27 at the end of July.
