DescriptionContentsAuthors

SMEs in Asian Developing Countries is about the development of small and medium size enterprises (SMEs) in Asian developing countries beginning with the discussion of the importance and main characteristics of SMEs in the region. Based on key literature and the countries most recent data, the book then presents and discusses current development of SMEs (e.g. growth in units and output, GDP contribution, sectoral concentration and export) in a number of countries including China, India, Pakistan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Nepal, Bangladesh, Brunei Darussalam and Vietnam. SMEs in Asian Developing Countries also touches on some important development related issues, such as the effect of trade liberalization on local SMEs, the main development constraints facing  enterprises, their competitiveness, their ability to innovate and the transfer of technology from large enterprises. This includes multinational companies to local SMEs, the degree of female involvement as entrepreneurs in SMEs and the connected constraints.
