Chinese MOF official responds to Moody's ratings downgrade 24 May

Over-estimates or just a reality check?

  • downgrade under-estimates China's ability to deepen supply side reform

Ah yes, the stuff we hear trawled out every day almost.

  • MOF expects China's economy to maintain stable and relatively fast growth
  • China's govt debt will maintain reasonable pace of growth
  • China's govt debt risks will not change dramatically in 2018-20

Right on cue. The same mantra. Say it enough times and it might come true seems the plan here.

  • Moody's latest credit rating assessment based on inappropriate methodology

Unlike the Chinese data releases then. Not.
