Spanish term or phrase: la internacionalidad pura y dura (del cliente moroso)
From a law firm's website, in a section on "Collection Management"...

Después de que la CE revelara que España es el único país de Europa en el que el 62% de las causas de impago viene representado por la internacionalidad pura y dura del cliente moroso, decidimos estudiar y poner en funcionamiento los métodos y políticas de cobro más eficaces de cara a evitar que sus deudores recurran al retraso indebido de la liquidación de sus facturas como fuente de financiación gratuita con la que sobrevivir a la crisis.

I cant find the EC report in question, but what do they mean by "62% de las causas de impago viene representado por la internacionalidad pura y dura del cliente moroso" - that 62% of the time, non-paying clients were from abroad?

Surely not

I can't help but think this is awfully expressed, any ideas?
