Chinese banking regulators have called for stress tests on loans to a wider range of industries. They include cement and steel, whose fortunes are closely tied to the property market.
The official Shanghai Securities News reported on Friday but didn't provide any details about the tests. But it says the tests would be a part of a broader investigation into the economy's ability to withstand falls in property prices.
The banking system has provided many loans to industries upstream and downstream from the real estate market, and their rises are connected to the property market.
