CHINA PRESS: Over 70% Chinese bankers contacted in a survey by the China Banking
Association expected non-performing loan ratios (NPLs) to stay below 2.0% in the
coming three years, the China Securities Journal reported on Wednesday. About
70% respondents are concerned about growths in the coming years, expecting
revenue and profit growth rates to be less than 10%, the newspaper said. The
banks are more cautious about real estate lending given many cities implemented
curbs on property purchases and lending, the journal said.
