International Business Report

Big complex issues face businesses today. From the impact of emerging markets to energy and environmental issues.

The Grant Thornton International Business Report (IBR), formerly known as the International Business Owners Survey (IBOS), provides insight into the views and expectations of over 7,800 privately held businesses across 34 economies. This unique survey draws upon 16 years of trend data for original participants of IBR's predecessor the European Business Survey (EBS) and 6 years of trend data for original participants of IBOS.

Topical reports for IBR 2008 explore the continued emergence of corporate social responsibility, global trends in recruitment and retention issues, investing in global growth markets and trends in mergers and acquisitions.
