The PwC Annual Global CEO Survey starkly highlights that business in every region of the world has now faced several years of disruption marked by sustained uncertainty that has required them to become ever more resilient in order to succeed.

Uncertainty over economic growth continues to be the main concern of CEOs; 81% said they had some level of concern regarding economic conditions. Other high ranking economic threats included fiscal deficits and debt burdens, and over-regulation. Potential increases in tax burdens, availability of key skills, and rising energy and raw material costs were the top three business threats identified.
