Over last several years after liberalization of Indian economy, Indian SMEs have withered several challenges arising due to globalization. They have competed with local and global players and brands and have grown sustainably over years establishing their own brands nationally and internationally.
Indian entrepreneurs have ventured out successfully, entering into several mergers and acquisitions, technology transfers and establishing their global footprints. The innovative ability and enterprising spirit of Indian SMEs have enabled India to become 3rd Most Preferred Investment Destination in the World.
Despite this, SMEs still lack adequate resources to harness their true potential and create utmost value from their competitiveness. They still face several challenges that hamper their growth and development. With the current challenging domestic and international business scenarios where complexities of doing businesses have grown phenomenally, dedicated efforts are required from all the stakeholders to enhance their capabilities and enable these enterprises become globally competitive.
