Bloomberg reported that Chinese firms now take a record 192 days to collect payment for their goods or services from when they pay for the inputs – the so-called cash conversion cycle. That is much higher than the 125 days five years ago.
The longer the cash conversion cycle is, the tougher it is for firms to pay their suppliers as well as debt. Cash has become a valuable commodity in China after company profits declined for the first time in three years and as debtors face their hardest time ever paying interest."
