State’s dialogue with SMEs timely

These enterprises find it difficult to recruit well trained staff, they often can’t access technology or resources to conduct research and development, credit is sometimes unaffordable or inaccessible, finding markets is difficult and getting into export markets is impossible.

There are also other constraints that relate to government regulations that hinder SME competitiveness. A good example is the recent closure of medium manufacturing enterprises for failure to comply with the National Environment Management Authority (Nema) requirements in a similar manner as large enterprises.
