Does Country Connectedness Matter for Obtaining Trade Credit?
Given the operational disruptions caused by the COVID-19 induced crisis, we study the impact of country connectedness on trade credit obtained by firms during the COVID-19 period. We also explore the impact of work from home amenable industries on the trade credit obtained by firms in the post-pandemic period. We find that interconnectedness among nations and work from home amenability of firms result in higher trade credit of firms during the COVID-19 period.
