Global Supply Chain is Disrupted
Carlos Casanova, Chief Asia Economist, Coface
The most recent data on China's consumer and producer price indices signalled that both consumers and producers are facing headwinds. We speak to Carlos Casanova, Chief Asia Economist at Coface about what the Chinese government might do to manage this. He also weighed in on the impact of recent trade tensions between Korea by Japan, and how it further affects the already-slowing ICT industry.
Also, according to a recent Coface report on corporate payment terms, companies in Asia have been dragging their feet to make payments. We ask why this is the case and whether its a sign of a worsening operating environment from slowing global growth and increasing trade tensions.
