    China Insight: A return of focus to credit clean-up in 2021

    14 Dec 2020

    Concerns over China corporate credit risk have come to the forefront since the beginning of Q4, highlighted by three high-grade issuers' defaults: 1. AAA-rated Huachen Auto Group (onshore), 2. AAA-rated Yongcheng Coal & Electricity Group (onshore), 3. AAA-rated Tsinghua Unigroup (offshore) Coincidentally, all of these three issuers are state-owned enterprises (SOEs) in nature.

As far as the FX is concerned, RMB has been appreciating against USD since the beginning of June on the back of broad-based weakness of greenback (chart 1). Besides, RMB has also been appreciating against all EM Asia currencies (except KRW) since USD's multi-month downtrend kicked off in early-summer. We attribute the RMB's outperformance relative to the rest of EM Asia to growing hopes of a victory of Biden in the 2020 presidential election, who's obviously far less hostile to China and promised to remove the existing tariffs on China in case he becomes the next US president...
