Audit targets local government debt

Move 'aims to reveal mounting risks and pave way for reform of finance system'

The National Audit Office declared on Sunday that it will start a nationwide assessment of local government liabilities, which will address concerns about rising debt from overambitious development projects.

The announcement was made following Chinese media reports that the State Council has made the audit campaign one of its "urgent" tasks, and that all government auditors are being given crash training so they can start the audit as early as next week.
