Thailand: Key Issues and Policies

image of Thailand: Key Issues and Policies

This book offers policy guidance to Thailand for fostering entrepreneurship and strengthening the performance of SMEs and their contribution to growth and development. It provides evidence-based analysis and policy recommendations on thematic issues such as access to finance for SMEs and entrepreneurs, SME participation in global markets, intellectual assets and innovation, high-growth SMEs and women’s entrepreneurship.



Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and entrepreneurship are fundamental drivers of economic growth and job creation. High rates of productive entrepreneurship and small business development stimulate productivity increases and greater exploitation of available resources in the economy. SMEs and entrepreneurship provide large numbers of people with jobs and incomes. Policy aims to facilitate these positive roles by addressing barriers in the way that markets, governments and institutions operate.
