L’internationalisation, une chance pour les PME et ETI

L’aéronautique est un exemple remarquable d’activité économique mondialisée. En France, plus de 80% du chiffre d’affaires du secteur est réalisé à l’international. Cette ouverture vers le monde est une chance mais de nouveaux concurrents font leur apparition.

Transaction transparency in Asia: the new paradigm

The recent development of transaction transparency in the payment business has been the increased focus of local regulators and market participants in Asia. As Sathya Ram, Regional Head of Clearing and Foreign Currency Payment Products of Global Payments and Cash Management for Asia-Pacific at HSBC, explains, this has important implications for corporate treasuries, as well more general connotations for economic development across the region.

Consumer protection provisions in the Dodd-Frank Act

Although the consumer protection provisions of the Dodd-Frank Act and similar recent legislation in other countries focus on the retail market, by implication this also encompasses many Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (SMEs). Furthermore, many of the new measures being put in place by financial institutions will in time percolate upwards to benefit larger corporates as well. Sathya Ram, Regional Head of Clearing and Foreign Currency Payment Products of Global Payments and Cash Management for Asia-Pacific at HSBC, explores some of the implications of the legislation in Asia for corporate treasury and finance functions.

Strategies for entering a new market

Simon Constantinides, HSBC’s Regional Head of Global Trade and Receivables Finance for Asia Pacific, explains why ASEAN-based companies, as well as those further afield, are well-positioned to capitalise on the opportunities made possible by regional trade flows and the unique resources of each member state.
