  • SME Competitiveness Outlook 2017 – The region: A door to global trade

    This year’s report focuses on regional trade, the most common form of trade for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

    It finds that deep regional trade agreements help deliver inclusive growth. These agreements attract value chain activity and narrow the competitiveness gap between large and small firms. When investment is part of such agreements, the impact is stronger. The report provides targeted advice for policymakers, businesses, and trade and investment support institutions. It combines data analysis, case studies, academic insights and opinions by thought leaders.
