The China Banking Regulatory Commission (CBRC) said that mainland commercial banks’ collective non-performing loan ratio has fallen to 6.1%, state media reported. China’s main commercial banks had a total of US$173 million in bad loans at the end of June, down from US$284 million at the end of March.

Chinese lenders’ bad-loan ratio stood at 6.3% at the end of March.
