The USA is issuing a lot of treasury bonds and investors are buying it.

But does China issue such bonds too?

If yes, then how many such bonds did they issued and who are the largest owners of those debts?

  • $\begingroup$ Some hints in this old Forbes article. By my math the central Chinese government had issued about $2 trillion in bonds as of 2016. It looks like most of that was owned by (domestic?) banks. $\endgroup$
