Join us for a live written discussion with a panel of experts to explore what can business do to strengthen MSME ecosystems in frontier markets.
Thursday 21st November 2019 15:00 – 16:00 GMT / 10:00 – 11:00 EST
MSMEs play a critical role in large company value chains as suppliers, distributors, retailers and customers and in communities as generators of jobs and livelihoods. Given the multiple systemic constraints they face, there is growing recognition that all those organisations with a stake in their success – large companies, governments, donors and funders, and NGOs – need to move towards a more holistic and joined-up approach to enterprise support, with the goal of strengthening the underlying ecosystem in which MSMEs operate. This session will explore practical ways that large companies and their partners can make this shift on the ground.
