May 10, 2019

SINGAPORE- Foreign investors' holdings of Chinese domestic bonds could rise to $500 billion in the next one to two years, raising China's exposure to the global financial cycle, according to a report published today by ratings agency Standard and Poors. The report says China's bond market will also increasingly affect financial conditions across Asia-Pacific.

China to ramp up production of energy, says S&P

April 26, 2019

HONG KONG - Standard and Poor's believes China's national oil companies (NOCs) are set to boost outlays to secure future energy supplies after several years of relative spending discipline. They will also bump up production in a year that has seen average oil prices well above their all-in cost levels, the ratings agency said.

"China's NOCs will focus on domestic exploration and production (E&P) for oil and gas in order to enhance national energy security," said S&P Global Ratings credit analyst Danny Huang.
