A healthy cash flow is an essential component for the smooth operations of any given company. Small and medium-sized companies are particularly sensitive to disruptions in their cash flow, and this means that issues like late payments can have a more negative impact on their operations, even leading to their bankruptcy. It is therefore important for companies to have a clear understanding of the payment landscape in the country they operate and the tools available to them to avoid and address instances of late payments.

The EU SME Centre and the European Chamber are pleased to invite you to our next Working Group meeting, where Junyu Tan, North Asia Economist at Coface, will provide an overview of the 2024 Coface China Corporate Payment Survey,  and a second expert will discuss the late payments from the perspective of foreign businesses in China. The meeting will take place online on Tuesday 25 June from 10:00 to 11:30.

How to register

If you are interested in participating in this meeting, please register by sending an email Ms Victoria Hanqi Gao at before Monday 24 June noon.
