China aims to raise $13.7 billion to invest in emerging industries

China Reform Holdings Corp, a major Chinese state asset manager, is planning to raise a substantial fund of at least 100 billion yuan (approximately $13.70 billion). This fund will be directed towards investments in emerging industries, as reported by China Business News.

The initiative has already garnered investment interest from over 20 central government-owned enterprises, local governments, and private investors. The fund is slated to commence operations by the end of the current year.

This move aligns with a broader trend in China, where state-owned enterprises (SOEs) are increasingly focusing on investments in emerging and strategic sectors such as artificial intelligence, new energy, new materials, and biotechnology. This is part of Beijing’s efforts to reform the SOEs and modernize them to be at the forefront of innovation and growth.

China Reform Holdings, established in 2021, holds a critical role in advancing these reforms within the state-owned enterprise sector. As of the end of 2022, the company managed nearly 860 billion yuan of assets, underscoring its significant presence in managing state assets and furthering economic goals in line with national strategies.

EU wants to make joint gas purchases permanent after high demand

The European Commission is proposing to make its joint gas purchase scheme permanent due to its success. This scheme was initiated by the EU in 2023 after Russia drastically reduced its gas deliveries to Europe in 2022, leading to record-high energy prices in the region. Despite having refilled its natural gas storage to over 90% capacity and a bearish market, the EU is concerned about potential future disruptions in gas supply, such as the Nord Stream 2 explosion that occurred last year. Originally set to expire in December, the Commission is now proposing to make the scheme permanent as part of a broader revamp of EU gas market rules.
