(Bloomberg) -- China can contain risks posed to the nation’s economy and financial system by China Evergrande Group’s debt crisis, according to central bank Governor Yi Gang, amid deepening concerns for other developers. 

The property firm’s troubles “casts a little bit of concern,” Yi said at a virtual meeting of the Group of 30 on Sunday. “Overall, we can contain the Evergrande risk.” The comments came after the People’s Bank of China on Friday broke its silence on the crisis, saying risks were controllable and unlikely to spread. 

Amid signs of authorities’ growing unease about rising contagion risk from Evergrande’s liquidity woes, China is loosening restrictions on home loans at some of its largest banks, according to people familiar with the matter. 

Fears of contagion risks intensified over the past two weeks after a surprise default by Fantasia Holdings Group Co. and a warning from Sinic Holdings Group Co. that its default was imminent. 

Evergrande’s onshore real estate unit is scheduled to pay yuan bond interest due Tuesday.
