Chinese state owned enterprises in danger of default…NOW

China’s SOEs May Terminate Commodities Contracts

“China’s state-owned enterprises may unilaterally terminate commodities contracts as they try to cut massive losses from financial derivatives, an industry source told Caijing on August 28.

According to the source, China’s State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission (SASAC) has sent notice to six foreign financial institutions informing them that several state-owned enterprise will reserve the right to default on commodities contracts signed with those institutions.

Keith Noyes, an official with the International Swaps and Derivatives Association, a trade organization, confirmed that he is aware of the matter, but provided no further comment.”

What’s that? Chinese state owned enterprises are facing massive losses on DERIVATIVES? And the ChiGov is going to make FOREIGN financial institutions eat the losses? So the US taxpayer will likely have to foot the bill, as Goldman and other US institutions are likely involved.
