Going by the findings of the SME Sentiment Survey recently released by Gulf Finance, it looks like SMEs in the UAE were equally impacted by the economic downturn that plagued their larger corporate counterparts in 2015. According to the survey, which covered the fourth quarter of 2015, small businesses felt considerable heat in aspects like growth outlook, revenue prospects and fund-raising in the period.
