The Study reviews the characteristics of the inflationary phenomenon at a global and national level and presents the results of an opinion survey conducted by Bank executives in small and medium-sized enterprises, clients of the Bank. Enterprises themselves assess the effect of the inflationary phenomenon on their operation, as well as their action plans to deal with the problem. It is a follow-up to research published in July 2022 with an updated sample and enriched questionnaire to explore the evolution of inflation over time and how business attitudes and responses are adapting. Useful conclusions are drawn about firms' pricing policy, cost management efforts, planning and execution of investment plans, as well as the relationship of these parameters to firm size.
The study is available in Greek.
