At this event we will looked at how small and medium-sized enterprises' (SMEs) financial inclusion is at the core of the economic diversification, growth, and job creation challenges many countries are facing. This event featured the presentation of Financial inclusion of SMEs in the Middle East and Central Asia, a recent paper by the IMF, which discusses the macroeconomic benefits that could stem from improved access to finance for SMEs in these two regions, which lag behind other regions when it comes to SME access to finance. It also highlights the range of reforms needed to unlock SME financial inclusion—from macro-financial conditions and public sector size, to institutional and regulatory issues related to competition, credit information, property rights and solvency frameworks.
