Challenges for SMEs development are multi-dimensional. As trade barriers, transport and
communication costs fall, SMEs are required to add more value to their products to stay ahead and compete
with lower cost rivals. Consumer demand is changing rapidly as incomes rise and choices increase when
imported products become easily available in domestic markets. Competition within the developing world for
export markets, foreign investment and resources is also intensifying.
This was motivation to focus in this paper on SMEs, its export competitiveness, business strategies, access for
financing and so on. Enhancing SME competitiveness requires creation of enabling legal, regulatory and
administrative environments and capable institutional structures, and most importantly human capital and a
sustainable environment. Removing supply-side constraint to trade and investment, require firms to build up
their competitive advantages. Public and private sectors in transition and developing countries must work
together to improve the functioning of markets at home, while intensifying efforts to integrate into the world
