China’s Evergrande should not bet on govt bailout
HONG KONG (Reuters) – Chinese state-media Global Times’ editor in chief said struggling Evergrande Group should use market means to save itself and should not bet on a government bailout as it deems itself “too big to fail”.
Hu Xijin stated on WeChat that he didn’t think Evergrande bankruptcy could trigger a financial systemic crisis like Lehman Brothers. This was because the company is a real-estate business with high downpayments.
Global Times, a tabloid that is nationalistic and published by the Communist Party’s People’s Daily, is called Global Times. These views may not reflect official policymakers’ thinking.
Evergrande has more than $300 billion in liabilities and is struggling to find funds.
