China economist at Capital Economics Mr. Julian Evan-Pritchard said: “Cleaning up China’s inefficient, wasteful state-owned enterprises (SOEs) is the most important reform for the long-run health of China’s economy. It’s the state sector that is holding back the economy, and [adding] to the crazy build-up of debt.”
The debt is the cause which worried the economists but the organizations have sustained to loan to state-owned firms because they have government support. Evans-Pritchard said: “We don’t have to worry they’re safe. That’s the key assumption China is an unusual situation in most countries, you would have had a crisis by now.”
