According to a report by the official Xinhua News Agency, “many” experts at the 2011 Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation meeting in the Chinese city of Chengdu said that small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in China faced “a situation seriously threatening their survival,” with investment capital hard to find, costs high and labor scarce. Experts suggested employing various measures to assist SMEs in navigating the tough environment. In this cartoon, posted by Kunming-based studio Yuan Jiao Man’s Space (圆觉漫时空) to, a long trail of travelers representing small and medium-sized enterprises in China cross through a bleak desert landscape littered with the bones of the dead as the sun blazes down.
