SME Export Indicator for Q4 2010 Export Sentiment Significantly More Subdued – Strong Swiss Franc Having an Impact

After signaling growth in exports throughout the year so far, both the Credit Suisse export barometer and Osec's SME export outlook indicator point to a slowdown in growth in the fourth quarter of 2010 compared with the previous year, or even a slight decline versus the preceding quarter. This is due to weaker economic activity abroad and the strong Swiss franc.
