Business confidence in Asia has fallen for the second quarter in a row, according to a closely-watched survey.
The study by Singapore-based business college INSEAD and Thomson Reuters said that sentiment at the region's top companies had declined further due to continuing fears about the global economy.
INSEAD's deputy dean Professor Ilian Mihov spoke to the BBC's Asia Business Report.
