However, businesses could be affected by policy shifts in six areas: infrastructure spending, regulation, taxes, public budget, trade and immigration.

Temporarily weak growth momentum in the Eurozone, Japan's Q3 GDP hit by natural disasters, how companies are starting to pay the crisis bill in Argentina and more headlines can be found in the Weekly Export Risk Outlook.
