Poverty-Stricken Yunnan Goes Back to School to Boost Growth
China’s first-ever local government bond sale to raise money for education spending is set to hit the market on Friday, as regional authorities respond to policymakers' calls for a more active fiscal policy to support economic growth.
The southwestern province of Yunnan plans to issue a five-year 1 billion yuan ($146 million) special-purpose bond whose proceeds will be invested in building campus facilities such as libraries, student dormitories and canteens at two government-funded universities, according to documents posted Saturday on chinabond.com.cn, an official website that provides central registration, depository and settlement services for bond sales.
