Nearly 100 "zombie companies" declared bankrupt in Guangzhou
GUANGZHOU, Jan. 8-- Ninety-four "zombie companies" in Guangzhou, capital of south China's Guangdong Province, were declared bankrupt, the city's Intermediate People's Court said Monday.
Most of them, including 74 state-owned enterprises, were established in the 1980s and 1990s.
These enterprises, making great losses for years, have ceased or suspended production, and survived on government subsidies and bank loans.
