Record low-interest rates in Europe have helped China issue its first negative-yielding government debt in a bond sale aimed at raising $4.7 billion in a three-part deal in euros.

China, the first major economy to return to growth from the coronavirus crisis, issued five-year notes at a yield of -0.152%. 

“Investors placed total orders of about €18 billion, said Samuel Fischer, head of China onshore debt capital markets at Deutsche Bank, one of the banks that handled the deal,” according to Wall Street Journal.
