About the product

As drivers of economic growth and prosperity, small and medium enterprises (SMEs) play a key role in economic development. However, the SME sectors of developing Asia-Pacific economies face issues (both general and nation-specific) that hinder their growth. There is a strong need to tackle such issues while taking into account the variety of experiences, policies and programmes of different countries. Covering major SME constraints — business enabling environment, entrepreneurial culture, access to finance, innovation and technology adaptation, business development services, and market access — this publication proposes public policy guidelines with an aim to develop a vibrant SME sector. It serves as a training manual for entrepreneurs, trainers as well as business associations for SME capacity building.
