Executive Summary

It appears to be common knowledge that external financing in China is mostly limited to state-owned firms and is hard to obtain for smaller private firms. In this paper the authors take a closer look at internal and external, formal and informal, financing sources of Chinese firms during the period of rapid economic reform in 1997 - 2006. To this end they analyze balance-sheet data from Chinese Industrial Surveys of Medium-sized and Large Firms for 2000-2006 and survey data from the Large-Scale Survey of Private Enterprises in China that was conducted in 1997, 2000, 2002, 2004, and 2006.
