The objective of the forum is to provide a platform for the exchange of views and experiences on the role, operational challenges and experiences of SME financing and support programmes, as well as the broader policy environment within which they operate.

The workshop draws on the experiences of Malaysia and Japan in developing the SME sector, and the overseas development assistance rendered in support of enterprise development. This forms the basis for reflection and comparison of experiences of SADC DFIs and member states in the implementation of such programmes.

The workshop expects to share experiences, and point to directions of policy reform for the enhancement of the performance of SMEs in the SADC region.
