SME issues

Over 90% of the Association's member companies are small or medium-sized. The SME Committee representing the small and medium-sized companies of the branch has produced an entrepreneurship programme, the goal of which is to improve the companies' operational preconditions and restoring their competitiveness.

The programme presents concrete solutions for small and medium-sized companies to meet the expectations to improve growth, renewal, and employment.

The SME Committee has also planned a business development programme directed at small and medium-sized companies.

The regional organisations of the Association support companies with labour market questions, for example. Growing challenges are small and medium-sized companies becoming more international, IPR issues, and different issues concerning product copying.
