Abstract or Summary

As globalisation is intensifying, the sustainability and growth of SBEs are becoming the key issues for economic growth in many countries. Globalisation has opened up new opportunities for SMEs and SBEs. An increasing number of SBEs now consider trading internationally as an important option. They are now considered as a new generation of international traders. Globalisation has also created new challenges for the survival and sustainability of firms, especially the SBEs. As more small firms enter the emerging and growing markets domestically and overseas most of them face challenges which arise from the threat of competition from new and emergent entrants in their markets. The purpose of this study is to report on the findings from an exploratory and qualitative research undertaken to explain the impact of globalisation on the sustainability of SBEs.
