Les lourdeurs administratives entourant le commerce intérieur, un fardeau pour la moitié des PME

Pourtant trois quarts des PME mènent des affaires dans d’autres provinces et un quart d’entre elles prévoient accroître leurs activités au cours des cinq prochaines années.

Selon les données d’un sondage publié aujourd’hui par UPS Canada, 48 % des petites et moyennes entreprises (PME) sont d’avis que les restrictions liées au commerce interprovincial et la paperasse qui y est associée nuisent à leur croissance. Malgré ces obstacles, 73 % des PME ont conclu des affaires avec des clients ou des partenaires situés dans d’autres provinces. Par ailleurs, les récentes discussions visant à moderniser le commerce intérieur au Canada permettraient aux entreprises (25 %) qui à l’heure actuelle ne font pas des affaires avec les autres provinces de vendre leurs produits à l’échelle nationale au cours des cinq prochaines années.
