This week GTNews has cobbled together a somewhat disjointed collection of articles relevant to corporate treasury and payments. Topics include liquidity management, e-trading developments, portal technology, payments STP, TMS trends, the credit crunch and its impact on corporates as well as the business environment in Turkey (not sure how that last one slipped in).
