Politiques en faveur des PME Afrique du Nord et Moyen-Orient 2014 : Évaluation sur la base du Small Business Act pour l'Europe by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development( )

4 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in French and English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ce rapport fournit une évaluation des politiques publiques en faveur des PME, dans huit économies du Moyen-Orient et d'Afrique du Nord. L'évaluation est structurée selon les dix principes (dimensions) du Small Business Act pour l'Europe. Le rapport conclut que la région dans son ensemble a au cours des cinq dernières années progressé dans les domaines clés de la politique en faveur des PME en dépit de la crise politique et économique. Cependant, les progrès furent modestes, progressifs et inégaux entre les économies et les dimensions. Les progrès ont été plus marqués dans les économies ayant mis en place un cadre institutionnel solide et bien structuré pour leur politique en faveur des PME

SME policy index : Eastern partner countries 2016 : assessing the implementation of the Small Business Act for Europe by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development( )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The SME Policy Index is a benchmarking tool designed for emerging economies to assess SME policy frameworks and monitor progress in policy implementation over time. The Index has been developed by the OECD in partnership with the European Commission, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), and the European Training Foundation (ETF) in 2006. For the Eastern Partner Countries, the assessment framework is structured around the ten principles of the Small Business Act for Europe (SBA), providing a wide-range of pro-enterprise measures to guide the design and implementation of SME policies based on good practices promoted by the EU and the OECD. It is applied to the Eastern Partner Countries for the second time since 2012. The Index identifies strengths and weaknesses in policy design and implementation, allows for comparison across countries and measures convergence towards good practices and relevant policy standards. It aims to support governments in setting targets for SME policy development and to identify strategic priorities to further improve the business environment. It also helps to engage governments in policy dialogue and exchange good practices within the region and with OECD and EU members

Report on the implementation of the European Charter for small enterprises in the Western Balkans by European Commission( )

3 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) are the backbone of Western Balkan economies but until recently received relatively little attention from policy makers. Governments focused on consolidating macroeconomic stabilization and the restructuring and privatization of large companies. The adoption in 2003 of the European Charter for Small Enterprises contributed to a change in policy perspective. The SME Policy Index 2007 presents the first comprehensive and comparative assessment of progress made in implementing the Charter. The assessment is based on the SME Policy Index, an analytical tool designed by the OECD Investment Compact and the European Commission, and uses collaborative benchmarking to measure progress in the ten dimensions of the Charter. Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, FYR Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and UNMIK/Kosovo are assessed in this report.--Publisher's description
SME Policy Index for the Western Balkans and Turkey 2016 : assessing the implementation of the Small Business Act for Europe( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The development of a dynamic and vibrant SME sector is of paramount importance for the seven EU pre-accession economies: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, and Turkey. The region's productive structure is predominately composed of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), which on average contribute to 75% of total employment and over 60% of total private-sector value added. Nevertheless, important challenges remain to transform the SME sector into a driver of economic growth and employment and to address persistent structural challenges such as high unemployment rates and the per capita income gap. However some of the conditions to leverage growth are already in place. First, the economies of the Western Balkans and Turkey (WBT) are covered by the current EU enlargement agenda. The EU's enlargement policy deals with the countries currently aspiring to become members of the European Union.^The EU's enlargement policy is an investment in peace, security and stability in Europe. It provides increased economic and trade opportunities to the mutual benefit of the EU and the aspiring member states. Second, SMEs in the Western Balkans and Turkey face a unique set of opportunities for business expansion. The region has made considerable progress on economic integration with the European Union, whose single market is the largest in the world, serving 500 million citizens and generating 23% of world GDP. The implementation of the Central European Free- Trade Area (CEFTA), a regional free-trade agreement comprising all the Western Balkan economies and the Republic of Moldova, and a network of free trade agreements between Turkey and the Western Balkans, have further expanded market access.^Third, the Western Balkans are advancing their transition to a market-based economic system, in particular with regard to liberalising and opening up their economies, while Turkey's economic reforms have contributed to deregulating and expanding its internal market. SME policy simultaneously targets changes in the economic structure and improvements in the business climate in general and enterprise growth potential in particular. The SME Policy Index assesses progress in implementing the ten principles of the Small Business Act for Europe (SBA) and compares the evolution in policy and remaining challenges across the region while providing guidelines for reform for each economy. This SME Policy Index, the fourth since 2007, sheds light on SME policy development over the past decade

Twenty-three tables/figures are included. Appended are a list of 32 recommended readings and a summary of major trends and issues in European management development. (Mn)
