The entrepreneurship and SME policy regime in five MENA countries
This chapter reviews current SME and entrepreneurship policies from OECD experience. The chapter aims at providing policy guidance for governments seeking to promote high growth enterprises.
While there is no single best practice policy or a "one size fits it all" programme, the report makes policy recommendations in the areas of regulatory reform, access to finance and the promotion of women as entrepreneurs. It concludes that careful evaluation of governments’ support programmes is necessary to identify which policies work best in their specific context.
