"Development and Finance of MSME - Challenges in Times of Crisis"

The development of diverse and competitive micro, small and medium enterprises (MSME) is the most crucial topic in developing and maintaining a sound economic system and achieving sustainable economic growth. Against the background of the current financial and economic crisis MSME and their financial environment as well as policymakers and developing institutions are facing extensive challenges.
