Like in other parts of Asia and the Pacific, small and medium-sized enterprises – SMEs – are the engine of developing Central Asian economies. Igniting the sector’s trade growth potential will be crucial to the region’s inclusive and sustainable COVID-19 recovery and development. In this podcast, ADBI Vice Chair of Research, Peter Morgan, examines SME trade challenges in Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation – CAREC – countries. He also describes the importance of boosting the region’s SME participation in production and supply chains and measures for doing so. The discussion draws upon the new book, Leveraging SME Finance through Value Chains in CAREC Landlocked Countries, which Morgan co-edited with Naoyuki Yoshino, Professor Emeritus at Keio University and former Dean of ADBI.
