Each week, we will showcase our SMEs by highlighting their companies and celebrating their entrepreneurial journey and impact. On June 30th, 5 SMEs will present on a panel discussing the impact and contribution of MSMEs to the global economy and sustainable development.

About MSME Day:

Every year on June 27th, Micro, Small, and Medium-Sized Enterprises (MSME) Day raises awareness about the critical role that various sizes of businesses play in meeting the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals and the impact they have on a global scale.

According to the United Nations (UN), Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) account for up to 90% of businesses, 60% to 70% of employment, and they account for 50% of global GDP.

It is estimated that up to 600 million jobs will be needed by 2030 to absorb the growing global workforce. This makes SME development a high priority for many governments around the world.
