Boosting SME competitiveness and job creation

Small and Medium sized Enterprises, SMEs stimulate private ownership and entrepreneurial skill and can adapt quickly to changing market situation, generate employment, help diversify economic activities and make a significant contribution to exports and trade in Bangladesh. So, policies and initiatives to develop SME’s and to increase their competitiveness are one of the priority objectives of ECI, Enterprise Competitiveness Institute.
