The external debt structure remained stable. In terms of the currency structure of foreign debts, as of the end of March 2022, foreign debts in local currencies accounted for 45%; in terms of the maturity structure of external debts, medium and long-term foreign debts accounted for 47%. The proportion of foreign debt in local currency and medium and long-term foreign debt is the same as that at the end of 2021.

Wang Chunying believes that my country’s external debt risks are generally controllable at present. In the first quarter of 2022, the scale of my country’s external debt decreased slightly, mainly due to the complex and volatile external environment, and the purchase of domestic RMB bonds and non-resident deposits by foreign investors decreased. The main indicators of my country’s external debt continue to be within the internationally recognized safety line, and external debt risks are generally controllable.

Wang Chunying said that although unstable and uncertain factors still exist in the external environment, the fundamentals of my country’s economy with strong resilience, sufficient potential and long-term improvement have not changed. With continuous inflow, the scale of foreign debt is expected to remain stable in the future. The foreign exchange bureau will continue to adhere to the coordinated development and security, continue to improve the level of cross-border investment and financing facilitation, and effectively support the high-quality development of the real economy.Return to Sohu, see more
