The growth of SME financing is most pronounced in emerging markets that benefit from a
proper legal framework. Examples include robust economies in Asia and Latin America and
in Eastern European countries that transitioned from a command to a market economy
following the fall of the Soviet Union. And it matters little if a country was established on civil
or common law principles because many differences have been reconciled in the interest of
global harmony and economic growth.
