Impacts of the Global Financial Crisis on Small and Medium Enterprises in the Peopleâ€™s Republic of China
This paper conducts an in-depth analysis of the impacts of the global financial crisis on the Peopleâ€™s Republic of Chinaâ€™s (PRCâ€™s) small and medium enterprises (SMEs). It also provides relevant policy suggestions at the end. First, this paper reviews the impacts of the 1997 Asian financial crisis on the PRCâ€™s SMEs, evaluating the policy measures for coping with the crisis at that time and summarizing the relevant experiences. Second, it analyzes the impacts of the current global financial crisis on the PRCâ€™s SMEs, focusing the discussion on the causes of and resulting problems from SMEsâ€™ shrinking export markets via reduced export orders, rising operating costs, decreased efficiency, increased shutdowns, sharply rising unemployment, weakened investment confidence, broken lines of funding, and reduced resources.
