Guoxin Asset Management Co, China's new state-asset management company, is expected to be running before the end of the year, Shanghai Securities News reported Tuesday, citing Shao Ning, vice chairman of the State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission (SASAC).
Guoxin Asset Management Co, also referred to as "China Investment Corporation No.2", will play an important role in the restructuring of state-owned enterprises, Shao said.
Guoxin will assist the SASAC's plan to reduce the number of centrally-administered SOEs.
According to Shao, the SASAC will further promote the overseas listing of Chinese SOEs. "We hope to create favorable conditions for SOEs to simultaneously list their A shares in mainland and H shares in Hong Kong, whether these companies have listed overseas or not," Shao said.
