Ratings agency Standard & Poor's has cut its outlook on China's sovereign bonds from stable to negative
Beijing - AFP

Ratings agency Standard & Poor's (S&P) cut its outlook on China from stable to negative on Thursday, warning that economic rebalancing was taking longer than expected.

"The economic and financial risks to the Chinese government's creditworthiness are gradually increasing," it said in a statement.

S&P kept its rating on Chinese sovereign bonds unchanged at AA-/A-1+.

Beijing is grappling with a tough economic transition away from dependence on heavy industries toward a consumer-driven model, but fluctuations in the exchange rate and stock markets have undermined confidence in leaders' willingness to push through reforms.

S&P said that it could downgrade Chinese government bonds this year or next if Beijing tries to keep economic growth at 6.5 percent by opening the credit floodgates and pushing investment to above 40 percent of GDP.

This would be "well above what we believe to be sustainable levels of 30%-35% of GDP and among the highest ratios of rated sovereigns", which it said would weaken the economy's resilience to shocks.

The US-based agency also said its downgrade was motivated by its view that much-needed reforms to hulking, inefficient state-owned enterprises may be "insufficient" to reduce the risks of credit-fuelled growth.

It projected the economy would expand at 6 percent or more over the next three years, but projected that government debt would rise to 43 percent of GDP.

But it said ratings could stabilise if Beijing takes measures to cool credit growth so that it is more in line with nominal GDP.
