The latest survey from Regus, the world’s largest provider of work places, shows that up to 89 percent of Vietnamese entrepreneurs from small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) would continue to pursue a business career if they had a chance to redo things.

The survey questioned 26,000 managers and entrepreneurs in 90 countries. The global average of the same index is 85 percent.

Accordingly, regardless of the current challenges that Vietnamese SMEs face, it seems that the entrepreneurs are still determined to develop their own businesses.

Up to 92 percent of Vietnamese people in business think that the current economic situation is the largest barrier to establishing companies, followed by challenging administrative procedures (agreed by 83 percent) and the overwhelming power of some big players in the market (agreed by 77 percent).

More than half of Vietnamese respondents also mentioned the restrictions in approaching capital sources and lack of government support as severe obstacles for enterprise development.

Serge Dupaux, Director of Regus Vietnam, evaluated that Vietnamese SMEs are playing a more important role in the current economic situation as large enterprises are experiencing some withdrawals in the market.

Meanwhile, Nguyen Xuan Anh, Chief Executive Official of Deli International Solutions, said that SMEs with simple organisational structures and high adaptability will play a key role in stimulating the economy.-VNA
