Please watch a very timely discussion marking the 2014 inaugural China Reality Check Series event.
Identified as one of the six key priority areas of economic work for 2014 at last month's Central Economic Work Conference, the Chinese leadership clearly sees managing the local debt problem as one of the issues it must tackle as part of its reinvigorated reform push.
