China - Fifth Industrial Credit Project (English)

Ratings for the Fifth Industrial Credit Project for China were as follows: outcomes were satisfactory, project sustainability was likely, Bank performance was satisfactory, and Borrower performance was also satisfactory. Some lessons learned included: despite some notable progress, China Investment Bank (CIB) continues to experience problems rooted in issues besetting the macro economy and the overall financial sector. Recognition of this, coupled with the opportunities presented by China's recently more receptive environment for banking system reform signaled by passage of a banking law and a central bank law, led to a shift in bank strategy. Reform of the banking system's overall policy and regulatory environment is now central to the financial sector strategy. While direct assistance to some key players in China's banking system continues, policy and institutional change at both the banking sector and individual bank levels dominates the attention. A 'twinning' arrangement between a local bank and a respected international commercial bank has been found to be a more acceptable means of transferring commercial banking skills to banks in command economies. When foreign technical experts must be used, it is crucial to gain the borrower's total understanding and acceptance of such assistance prior to project implementation.
