AuthorUnited Nations Conference on Trade and Development
TitleDevelopment Strategies and Support Services for SMEs: Proceedings of Four Intergovernmental Expert Meetings. Volume 1
Imprint Geneva, United Nations. 2000
Descript viii, 244 p. : charts, graph, tables


Abstract: These proceedings entail a selection of papers that have been presented at four intergovernmental expert meetings, held by UNCTAD between 1997 and 1999. They include the latest ideas, theories, approaches and case studies in the field of development strategies and support services for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in developing countries. The collection is divided into four parts: Part I - Promoting policy coherence, Part II - Enhancing inter-firm cooperation, Part III - Developing SME clusters, and Part IV - Providing services to SMEs. The selection of national case studies presented in each section complements the theoretical papers and serves as a reminder that between theory and practice there is often a wide gulf. In addition, it illustrates the great diversity among developing countries and their situations and problems, and shines light on why something that is successful in one specific cultural and socio-economic context may perhaps fail in another. The result of this diversity is a very wide spectrum of policy options, requiring careful research and policy analysis in order to ascertain their suitability to particular national contexts.
