Guo came in as Head of CCB from his Dy Governor role at the PBOC in 2001 before the Huijin was reorganised

Between 1-2 Tln Yuan of the Yn 12 Tln Local LSF debt was expected to go bad and the government had instructed the banks to add back a third to their balance sheets instead of off balance sheet exposure.
