The Influence of Internet Finance for SME Financing in China

Introduction
Currently, SME (Small And Medium-size enterprises) is the foundation of promoting national economy development, constructing the subject of market economy and promoting the development of social stability in China (Wang, 2011). In recent years, the economic situation has experienced dramatic change and this huge variation stimulates financing needs of SMEs in China greatly. Nevertheless, the majority of SMEs have financing difficulties due to their personal limitations and insufficient external support. As a result, it is hard for them to have a further development. With the advent of the information technology revolution, Internet Finance is considered as a new effective way to solve the financial difficulties of SMEs and it brings about many positive influences, although there are some negative aspects to improve. This essay will firstly inform background information about the reasons for SME financing difficulty as well as Internet finance’s current condition. Additionally, it will give evidence for the main argument that there are more positive influences than negative influences of Internet finance on minor enterprises’ financing issue. Finally, some practical suggestions will be put forward, helping Chinese SMEs to find the optimal choice in financing.

Internet Police in China

...article “The Internet police in China: regulation, scope and myths” wrote by Xiaoyan Chen and Peng Hwa Ang, the authors focused on the analysis of the Chinese Internet censorship and the role of the internet police in China. With the emergence and the development of the Internet, the number of Internet users grew rapidly in China and reached 384 million in 2009, which is larger than the US Internet users. In order to keep the Internet community in order, the Chinese government has put a lot of effort to regulate and control the online space. The Internet police was one of the efforts that the Chinese government has been made to regulate and manage the Internet (Chen& Ang, 2011). The public Information and Internet Security Supervision Bureau (PIISS) was set up in 1998, which intended as an online police unit to manage cyber space. This bureau was established at provincial, prefecture and county levels, which contains around 20000 Internet police everywhere in Mainland China (Chen& Ang, 2011). “Internet police work can be understood as supervision of the safety of the computer network and Internet systems, administrative regulation on Internet activities and detection of computer and Internet crimes” (Chen& Ang, 2011, P. 42).

...Rural Finance Opportunities in China By Alison Kennedy and Albert Chan From the steppes of Inner Mongolia to the tropical islands of Hainan Province, half of rural Chinese households lack access to banks or other formal financial services. With central government blessing, that will change over the next decade. But Chinese and multinational players considering this vast and variegated market will need innovative marketing and business models, a taste for on-theground campaigning, and patience. 1 2 Hidden in plain sight: the other economic miracle The popular narrative of China’s economic rise has been overwhelmingly urban and state-sponsored, from glittering architectural wonders rising up in Shanghai to new high speed railway lines and the growing appetite for cars and branded luxury goods. 3 Edited by Foxit Reader Copyright(C) by Foxit Software Company,2005-2007 For Evaluation Only. Government investment and private finance have indeed focused mainly on the country’s large cities, particularly along the eastern coastal provinces. That’s just half the story. Rural China, with between 50 and 56 percent of the population, or close to 700 million people, has emerged from the shadows and come of age economically. This vast collection of farms, villages, and towns in secondary coastal and inland provinces is now attracting attention from the Chinese central government, multinational corporations, investors, and local companies. Many larger Chinese......

...Chapter 2 A Behavioral Finance Approach to Decision Making in Entrepreneurial Finance Rassoul Yazdipour By ‘uncertain’ knowledge, let me explain,… We simply do not know. J.M. Keynes (1937) Humans have an additional capability that allows them to alter their environment as well as respond to it. This capacity both creates and reduces risk. Paul Slovic (1987) All risk that is acted upon must be perceived risk because perception is based upon sensory data. We can only sense the ‘real world’ because we have no other way of being informed. Robert Olsen (2010) Understanding a problem is half of the solution Unknown Abstract  Three central decisions in entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial finance – entry/seed funding, financing/investment, and growth/exit – are discussed and case is made for applying the behavioral finance theories and concepts to better understand the involved decision processes, and consequently, to help improve the decisionmaking process for both entrepreneurs and venture capitalists. The behavioral finance approach is important because the traditional finance has remained silent on the first issue, and the Agency Theory (financial contracting), which is effectively the only theory that is applicable to issues in entrepreneurial finance, has produced mixed empirical results. (See for example Bitler et al. [Bitler MP, Moskowitz T J, VissingJorgensen A (2009) Why do entrepreneurs hold large ownership shares? Testing agency theory using......

China Finance

...China has lowered its growth target from 8% to 7% for the next five years. Discuss the possible consequences of slower growth in China to the UK economy. On one hand, slower Chinese growth may reduce Chinese domestic consumption. This will have two possible consequences. Firstly, it may reduce Chinese imports and the Chinese are not able to afford as much luxuries from abroad and therefore reduce British exports, thus increasing costs to British exporters and causing unemployment in the UK and lower income. Secondly, as Chinese domestic demand is reduced, Chinese export capacity increase. This will free up Chinese capacity for exports putting more pressure on other exporters such as the British exporters market. This will make Chinese exporting firms more competitive abroad but also foreign firms more competitive as their exports will fall too. However, if economic growth in China is slowing down because it is becoming more developed and moving away from cheap manufacturing goods, it will mean that they will start to demand more financial services so British exports may actually increase. Yet, only a small component of our exports goes to China so a slowdown in their growth may actually have small effect on the UK economy. Furthermore, the growth target has only faller from by 1% so nothing much has changed. On the other hand, slowing growth in China and in the UK could lead to slowing price rises for a wide range of commodity goods as well as consumer goods which will......

...OVERVIEW Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) occupy unique position in most of the countries especially in a developing country. They are a primary target for many countries desiring to stimulate economic growth and development. The SMEs sub-sector plays an increasingly dominant role in the technology assimilation and dissemination and in economic development in Bangladesh as well. In Bangladesh, SMEs playing a significant role for the development of our economy by creating employment opportunity and producing important alternative machines and machinery parts for saving huge foreign currency for our country. So as a part of our development strategy, we should intensify our efforts to develop this sector to grow industrial base and volume of foreign trade. As we know the in this age of globalization, it is impossible to stop the flow of foreign goods to any country. Only quality products can meet the challenges in global market. For meeting this situation SMEs need to upgrade their technological capabilities and production facilities in order to produce quality products at a competitive price. DEFINITION Small and medium enterprises or small and medium-sized enterprises (also: Small and Medium-sized Enterprises; acronym in the plural: SMEs; small and medium businesses or small and medium-sized businesses, acronym: SMBs; and variations thereof) are companies whose headcount or turnover falls below certain limits.

Sme Financing of Five Banks

...SMALL and Medium enterprises (SMEs) have been playing a significant role for socio-economic development in all countries, particularly in the developing economies. In Asia, they play even a greater role as the sector constitutes about 98% of all enterprises, accounting for 30% of total employment and 30% of direct exports. However, SMEs face a plethora of challenges in terms of lack of access to information, technological disadvantages, lack of adequate finance and backdated marketing and managerial skills. Bangladesh, being one of the least developing countries and faced with several constraints, has not been able to meet the challenges in SME sector appropriately. This has deprived the country of the substantial benefits that could come from the SMEs through their contribution to overall development of the national economy. According to a study conducted by Canadian Integrated Development Association (CIDA), there are about 6.0 million SMEs in Bangladesh and among them only 27 thousand enterprises are ready to expand and export. SMEs contribute 50 per cent of total industrial output employing 82 per cent of industrial labour force. This statistics show that the productivity of labour is low as 82 per cent of workforce is producing only 50 per cent of output. Therefore, there is a high labour-capital ratio. Although Bangladesh is an overpopulated country with abundance of labour, a large portion of its total workforce still remains unskilled and semi-skilled. One......

China Business Sme

...(Business Monitor International, 2006). As a result, China's SMEs are now facing an economy flooded with foreign capital, and with a more open economic climate than in previous years, but also a much more competitive economy, where many of their previous practices are no longer relevant. This piece aims to examine the effect of these changes on the strategies of Chinese SMEs by first examining the role of the SME in the economy, then analysing the strengths and weaknesses of the Chinese SMEs, and the opportunities and threats that have arisen from China's WTO membership. The piece will then examine Chinese SMEs from a strategic perspective, and the impact the the WTO membership has had on said strategies. Finally, the piece will give strategic recommendations for Chinese SMEs that wish to take advantage of the opportunities that WTO membership offers, and also for those SMEs that wish to avoid the challenges it poses. The Role of SMEs in both the International Perspective and the Chinese Perspective Academics have long realised that small and medium enterprises grow to become the major corporations and businesses of the future (Davis et al., 1985). As a result of this view, greater attention has been given to the role of small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) in contributing to the economic growth of countries over the past twenty years in countries all over the world. Due to the importance of the role that SMEs play, for the last 15 years governments have urged by......

...SUMMARY Overall, the SME FDI is currently an extremely valuable initiative. Through appropriate and careful analysis of the data, public policy can be directed yet more efficiently to further improve competitive advantage of Canada's SMEs. In particular, the baseline survey associated with the SME FDI is an extraordinarily valuable research undertaking. It provides the potential to assess directly the extent to which financing gaps might occur in the capital markets on which SMEs rely. This is an important issue in practical terms, in terms of the role of public policy, and in terms of economic and finance theory. The SME FDI baseline survey data provides, for the first time internationally, a means of empirically testing Nobel prize-winning ideas related to information asymmetry and capital rationing. The data provides a means of providing yet better guidance for public policy with respect to addressing potential capital market imperfections that might constrain growth and economic development of SMEs. As designed, the research initiative can and will provide valuable information about these issues. In summary, the baseline survey undertaken as part of the SME FDI is a potentially invaluable resource with respect to the design, targeting, implementation, and follow-up assessment of public policy approaches to nurturing SME growth and viability. The outcomes of this research process could help Industry Canada and its partners to provide Canadian SMEs with substantial......
