SME MANAGEMENT (MGT601) ASSIGNMENT NO. 01
DUE DATE: 3RD DECEMBER, 2014
Small and medium enterprise is a term refers to any investment that entrepreneurs do invest in establishing a venture. The choice of these ventures most of the time depends on the capability of an entrepreneur in terms of art, craft, skill or talent and that is the core reason for its existence. Such initiatives are usually taken by lower and lower-middle classes to take a chance to get the economic and financial gain, small businesses become a cause for economic emancipation of not only the businessman but of many who work for him. Other returns acquired through such ventures have even deeper effect, it may include the up level of productivity at vendor level, generate healthy competition, enhance craftsmanship, and the ability to drive innovation.
Large economies have merged the SME’s into a greater part of their GDP, like USA has 39 per cent of its share coming from SME sector. Likewise China is attaining almost 60 per cent from SME. Even small countries like Bangladesh’s SME sector have a contribution of more than 25% to its total GDP. Being the backbone of economic development have always been the core agenda of government’s economic policy initiatives.
In spite of the fact that SME create most of the jobs as compared to large firms, the government had paid less attention as a result this sector is at par. The consequences are huge un employment, extincting financial resources, deteriorating economic & social life and at the end extreme poverty.
In the light of above scenario and being a student of SME Management, what would you suggest (workable steps) to government for uplifting the SME sector? Enlist any five established institutes that extend facilitation to entrepreneurs.

Some of these institutes are mentioned in lecture no. 12......kindly go through it.....
It is almost the answer of the 2nd part...
Enlist any five
established institutes that extend facilitation to entrepreneurs
Established Institutes that Extend Facilitation to Entrepreneurs:
SMEDA should be made more accessible and cooperative. SMEDA
has only 110 employees all over Pakistan. There is a need to
strengthen and enrich the organization to manage the
developmental affairs of the vast SME sector.
Energy crisis and poor Law & Order situation are major impediments
in SME growth. We lost 3.2 percent of our growth, over the past
Basic facilities in the Export Processing Zones must be improved
to attract more investors.
(Workable steps) to government for uplifting the SME sector?
My view point is ..
Workable steps should be :
1) SMEs and Economic Efficiency .
First and foremost, small firms are generally inefficient and have to be made efficient through proper policy support and guidance. Small industry needs to be made buoyant and progressive partner in development process.
2) Large-Small Links may not get established automatically, they are to be developed with Government policy support.[Staley and Morse, 1965].
3) Promotion of Entrepreneurship
Promotion of entrepreneurship through advisory services should be the major objective of SMEs policy in Pakistan.
4) Modernization and Employment
Policy measures always aim at encouraging small (i.e. traditional) firms to adopt modern product design, production methods and sales techniques for raising production, incomes and living standards.
