Bad-loan ra­tio will be sta­ble

The Star Early Edition - - INTERNATIONAL -

CHINA’S com­mer­cial banks will see their bad-loan ra­tio re­main sta­ble over the com­ing quar­ters, a re­port by China Ori­ent As­set Man­age­ment fore­casts. In the fourth quar­ter of last year, Chi­nese lenders’ non-per­form­ing loan ra­tio de­clined to 1.74 per­cent for the first time since 2012. The ra­tio was un­changed in the first three months of this year. Cit­ing re­sults from sam­ple sur­veys and data anal­y­sis, the re­port said the bad-loan ra­tio would re­main sta­ble from the sec­ond quar­ter of 2017 to the first quar­ter 2018. – Xin­hua
