The author expresses her views on how the small-to-medium enterprise is performing during the recession. She advises to forget any expectations about a recovery which she believes is not going to happen. Despite the goal of businesses to grow, they are limited by resources and finance. She recommends Asia for businesses that are eyeing export markets. She cites the optimism around business growth reported by the ANZ Privately-Owned Business Barometer in June 2010.
