Entrepreneurs in the developing and transforming world

Leading development agencies and most governments have come to the common understanding that enabling environments including public support to private entrepreneurial activities are vital to sustainable economic growth, poverty alleviation and social pluralism.

SMEs (small and medium sized enterprises) are catalysts for economic growth and innovation. As most of them engage in labour-intensive industries, they provide the vast majority of job opportunities for the growing supply of labour force in developing and emerging economies.

Stimulating SME-led growth requires management know-how, skilled labour supply, technology, and capital - all this embedded in appropriate legal and policy frameworks. Intensified global competition drives SMEs in developing and industrialised countries to expand their activities and commercial interest beyond regional and national borders.
