BEIJING (Reuters) – Chinese banks extended a record 12.56 trillion yuan ($1.82 trillion) of loans in 2016 as the government encouraged more credit-fueled stimulus to meet its economic growth target, despite worries about the risks from an explosive jump in debt.

China’s top leaders pledged after a key meeting last month to stem the growth of asset bubbles in 2017 and place greater importance on the prevention of financial risk, while keeping a “prudent and neutral” monetary policy.

Lending continued to be driven heavily by robust mortgage growth despite a slew of measures rolled out by local governments late in 2016 to cool sizzling housing prices and contain property bubbles.

Outstanding yuan loans ticked up by 13.5 percent by month-end on an annual basis.
