China looks for private partners for infrastructure projects

China's National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) is seeking partners for 1,043 public private partnership projects in 29 regions.28 May 2015

The NDRC's website gives a list of the projects, broken down by region (link in Chinese).

The list of projects varies from sewage treatment plants in Dalian in the north east of China to rail and road projects in Xinjiang Uyghur autonomous region in the north west.

The NDRC is a central planning agency that "formulates and implements national economic and social development, annual plans and medium and long-term development plans", according to its website.

In April, China announced that it would allow private investment in broadband services, and also that it would open its bank card clearing market to foreign firms.

The country also said last month that it would use its foreign exchange reserves to inject at least US$62 billion in capital into three "policy banks" to support the country's 'belt and road' economic plan.
