The CFO Innovation Asia Business Outlook Survey finds that as the effects of the recession wear off, the pessimism of the third quarter is giving way to a measure of optimism.
Confidence in company performance remains relatively buoyant, and a higher proportion of respondents anticipate higher sales and profits. Companies are hiring, and will continue to focus on expanding in new markets and strengthening sales, marketing and distribution.
