Enhancing competitiveness for SMEs in Egypt : general framework and action plan

Creating job opportunities through stimulating the role of the private sector in economic activity, setting market forces in motion and promoting investment are amongst the priorities of the Egyptian government’s economic policy. Accordingly, the Government of Egypt, and all its agencies, focuses on developing appropriate policies and procedures necessary to enhance enterprise competitiveness that will ultimately lead to increasing the volume of Egypt’s exports. As small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in Egypt represent the greatest share of the productive units of the Egyptian economy, the current national policy directions address ways and means of developing the capacities of SMEs to realize the above mentioned goals.
