Country overview

China has seen strong improvement across its procurement and permit processes and regulatory markets since 2017. This has been driven by reductions in cost to start a business and time to register property, as well as by transparency of procurement processes. China’s infrastructure investment remains high at 6.7% of GDP, but its private infrastructure investment remains low as a percent of GDP.

Governance structure

China has five tiers of government under a civil law system. Infrastructure delivery is a complex collaboration between tiers of government with infrastructure plans set by the central government and delivered by provincial, prefectural, and county governments.

National Infrastructure Banks – China Development Bank (CDB)

The China Development Bank is a wholesale lender that deploys low-cost financing to key infrastructure projects and pillar industries with the goal of enhancing national competitiveness and improving people’s livelihood. It is structured as a Development Finance Institution (DFI) and has the status of a Ministry under the governance of the State Council of the Central Government. The CDB finances through debt securities and provides loans and advances across a wide range of tenors from less than a year to over 10 years. Sectors of involvement include railways, highways, electricity, public infrastructure (including water), urban renewal, and strategic emerging industries. The CDB contracts with domestic state-owned enterprises, local governments, and foreign public bodies, providing technical assistance, consultancy, and turnkey project development especially in projects at the early-stages of financing.
