Business Monitor Latin America
UPS Business Monitor™ Export Index Latin America
Launched in September 2014, The UPS Business Monitor™ Export Index Latin America (BMEI) is a report commissioned by UPS that surveyed executives from some of the leading small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) from eight countries in Latin America. The study was carried out by conducting in-depth interviews, analyzing the best export practices implemented by the selected SMEs in the areas of logistics, planning and market research, pricing, products, financing, and promotion and communications. The results of this study are based on the solid experience of the interviewees in the export trade industries.
Business Monitor Canada
Canada's small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are more global in their outlook compared to one year ago, believing Canada must diversify its export base and do away with trade barriers in order to ensure the country's economy can compete with emerging markets.
The most recent results of UPS Canada's quarterly barometer of SMEs shows a high level of optimism about Canada's international competitiveness and the fate of its manufacturing sector.
Business Monitor Asia
The UPS Asia Business Monitor has been tracking Asian small and medium enterprises (SME) sentiments since 2005. With the global economy in recovery, Asian SMEs reflect greater optimism when compared to last year. However, wounds from the financial crisis have not fully healed and funding continues to be a major concern. For many SMEs, their top fears are rising costs, competition, interest rate hikes and cash flow.
Business Monitor United States
Although concerned about the economy, small- and medium-sized business exporters are confident about their companies' futures, especially when it comes to international sales, according to this year's Business Monitor United States survey commissioned by UPS.
