Of which, 403.31 billion U.S. dollars were international commercial loans and 59.14 billion U.S. dollars were loans extended by foreign governments and international financial organizations, according to data released by the State Administration of Foreign Exchange.
Meanwhile, 309.5 billion U.S. dollars were debts stemming from trade loans between companies, the data showed.
The majority, or 80.79 percent of the nation's foreign debt was denominated in the U.S. dollar, followed by the Euro, which accounted for 5.96 percent in China's foreign debt structure, and the Japanese yen, which accounted for 5.53 percent, the data showed.
The foreign debt data calculation did not cover debts from China's Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan.
