Tianjin Binhai Construction and Investment Group Co., Ltd. (Initial Issuer Report)

Lianhe Global has assigned ‘A-’ global scale Long-term Issuer Credit Rating with Stable Outlook to Tianjin Binhai Construction and Investment Group Co., Ltd. (“TBCIG”).

The Issuer Credit Rating reflects a high possibility that the Tianjin Municipal People’s Government (“Tianjin government”) would provide strong support to TBCIG if needed, in light of its 100% ownership of TBCIG, TBCIG’s strategic position as the major development and operation entity of Tianjin Binhai New Area (“Binhai New Area”) and the strong linkage between the Tianjin government and TBCIG including management supervision, strategic alignment, and ongoing operational and financial support. In addition, the Tianjin government may face a significant negative impact on its reputation and business and financing activities should TBCIG encounter any operational or financial difficulties. 

The Stable Outlook reflects our expectation that TBCIG’s strategic importance would remain intact while the Tianjin government will continue to ensure TBCIG’s stable operation.
