Lack of interest and investment despite countless opportunities overseas
Newly-released data shows that small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are still hesitant to engage in international trade, despite the vast opportunities in the worldwide marketplace.
In part two of its three-part series to study SMEs’ global trade habits and attitudes, the survey, commissioned by UPS Canada, revealed that 52 per cent of SMEs would not take advantage of a free-trade deal with the EU — not because it’s with the EU, but because they have no interest in engaging in trade activity at all.
