(Peninsula Qatar) International  IMF: Cannot do much about reform without US support – The International Monetary Fund’s (IMF) Chief Christine Lagarde said that there was not much she could to push reforms at her organization and give emerging economies a bigger say without the support from the US. In January, China had called on IMF member nations to stick to a commitment to give emerging markets more power at the global lender after US lawmakers set back historic reforms that would give developing countries a greater say. The remarks by China's foreign ministry were an indirect criticism of the US, where lawmakers failed to agree on funding measures needed for the reforms to move forward. The US Congress must sign off on the IMF’s funding to complete reforms that would make China the IMF's third-largest member and revamp the organization’s board to reduce the dominance of Western Europe. (Reuters)  Central banker says defaults may be good for China markets – According to Deputy Central Bank Governor Pan Gongsheng, some debt defaults could be positive for market discipline in China and help the wealth management market to develop in a more healthy way. Gongsheng said naturally occurring defaults may be conducive to strengthening market discipline constraints, correcting the behavior of product issuers and investors, and also conducive to the healthy development of the wealth management market. Recently, Chinese Premier Li Keqiang signaled that the government would not ride to the rescue of every troubled investment by saying some loan defaults are unavoidable in a challenging economic environment. Growth in Chinese corporate debt has been unprecedented. A Thomson Reuters analysis of 945 listed non- financial firms showed total debt soared by around 260% to 4.74tn Yuan ($777.3bn) between December 2008 and September 2013. (Reuters)  China’s HSBC flash PMI falls for fifth month in row – A preliminary private survey has showed activity in China's factories slowed for a fifth straight month in March, raising market expectations of government stimulus to arrest a loss of momentum in China’s economy this year. The flash Markit/HSBC Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) fell to an eight- month low of 48.1 in March 2014 from February's reading of 48.5. The index has been below the 50 level since January, indicating a contraction in the sector this year. Output and new orders both weakened, but new export orders grew for the first time in four months, suggesting the slowdown has been driven primarily by weak domestic demand.
