Foreign Investors Turned Net Buyers of Chinese Government Bonds in July

Foreign investors once again became net buyers of Chinese government bonds in July—but only by a hair.

International investors have spent much of the past seven months reducing their exposure to the market, concerned about the geopolitical risks of investing in China following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. They have also been attracted by yields available in the U.S. government bond market, which in April started to offer higher returns than Chinese government bonds for the first time in more than a decade.
