EuroFinance poll finds Chinese treasurers’ business confidence fall to 39% from 60% in 2013

The business confidence of senior treasury and finance professionals in China has decreased by 21 percentage points over the past year.
PUDONG, China - Nov. 28, 2014 - PRLog -- This was the key finding of the "Treasury Verdict" session taken by a live audience poll of senior treasury and finance professionals at EuroFinance's 12th annual conference on Cash, Treasury & Risk Management in China, held in Shanghai.

Almost four out of every 10 Chinese treasurers (39%) say that they feel more confident about their business' prospects in the next year. This represents a drop in confidence from same poll last year, when a majority of the country's treasurers (60%) felt more confident about their business' prospects for the year to come.

In this year's poll, there has been an increase in the amount of treasurers in China that feel the same about their business' prospects year-on-year (34% compared to 20% in 2013) and a modest rise in those feeling negative (27%, up from 20% in 2013).

Treasury Verdict statistics from the past month show that treasurers in China are marginally less positive than their peers in Southern Africa (46%) and Europe (41%), but are more positive in terms of business confidence than their peers in Brazil (28%).

Katharine Morton, EuroFinance's Editorial Director, says: "China presents a complex picture for corporates, as we can see from these business confidence numbers. This can particularly depend on the industry that you are operating in.”
