Public corporations in East Asia typically have a low level of transparency and disclosure quality. Poor accounting information is often blamed for high financing costs in this region. The financing difficulty became evident during the recent Asian Financial Crisis.

Top U.S. Trading Partners - THIS MONTH'S ISSUE - World Trade
In 2007, the Canadian economy essentially averted the slowdown developing in the United States. Wage and job growth provided solid support for household consumption.

In his annual State of the Nation speech on Monday, President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono (SBY) announced an increase of 0.1 percent of the tax-to-GDP ratio from 11.9 percent to 12 percent. This will cover about 77 percent of the 2011 state budget revenue. This target is perhaps quite realistic.

This ratio should be increased significantly since the tax revenue would be more dominant in contributing to the state revenue in the coming years. This is also very important if we want to reduce our foreign debt. Sweden is considered one of ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
