Brexit fails to dampen SME global growth hopes
A new survey of over 1,000 companies has found that the turmoil caused by the Brexit vote has failed to diminish small businesses’ hunger for global expansion. The study, produced by East & Partners, on behalf of Western Union Business Solutions, found that 47.8% believe they will see growth in international trade activity, with only 5.5% thinking it will deteriorate. Just under 40% of firms are expecting growth in domestic trade. Western Union Business Solutions president Kerry Agiasotis said there is a “sense of optimism” in the air, with businesses looking forward to new opportunities in the post-Brexit period.
