BEIJING, Sept. 18 (Xinhua) -- The value of bonds issued in China last month totaled 4.4 trillion yuan (about 641 billion U.S. dollars), according to data from the central bank.

Treasury bond issuance stood at 369.5 billion yuan, while local government bond issuance was worth 883 billion yuan, according to the People's Bank of China.

By the end of August, the size of outstanding bond market debt was 81.9 trillion yuan.
