Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are major contributors to every economy. With more than 70% of the population in many countries employed by SMEs, there is an increasing awareness of the need to foster and support entrepreneurship. The private sector is undergoing a tremendous transformation led by SMEs. Innovation is occurring throughout the country and not just limited to urban areas. An environment has been established where locals are able to create their own job opportunities. Creative ideas around the financing and licensing of companies are available to the private sector and small business owners. Legislation has been passed which gave a specific mandate to support SMEs.
The ICSB World Congress will provide an opportunity to discuss the opportunities and challenges posed by the future on entrepreneurship.
