The United Nations General Assembly recognizes the crucial role Micro-, Small, and Medium-Sized Enterprises (MSMEs) play towards achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals. With support from the International Council for Small Business (ICSB) worldwide, the Mission of Argentina to the UN authored the resolution that was presented to and negotiated with all UN member states. The resolution was co-sponsored by 45 UN member states representing over five billion people in the world. Singapore was one of the frontrunner states who pledged support for this cause.

ICSB Singapore’s newly elected President, Ms. Elim Chew, warmly welcomed the adoption of the resolution noting that, “The adoption of the resolution further reinforces the importance of supporting youth entrepreneurship.”
“Our next generation of entrepreneurs faces new challenges and opportunities in the face of global shifts. We need to empower them and help local enterprises to adapt and thrive. We are happy to partner *SCAPE, Singapore’s premier youth development hub, to help us in supporting youth entrepreneurs,” adds Elim.

ICSB Singapore will be collaborating with Singapore’s premier youth development hub, *SCAPE to develop a series of events targeted at youth entrepreneurs and next generation business leaders. *SCAPE currently hosts more than 70 start-ups in social enterprise, creative arts, youth services, ICT, F&B, retail, and lifestyle sectors, offering aspiring youth entrepreneurs access to co-working and hot-desking spaces, on top of developmental programmes such as business pitches, workshops, and networking sessions.

La declaratoria , por Naciones Unidas del Día de la Micro, Pequeña y Mediana Empresa, es un reconocimiento explicito al gran papel que en la dinámica empresarial juega este segmento empresarial , que en agregado es el mas importante de la economía de la gran mayoría de los países y que en numero de establecimientos responde por mas del 97% de los establecimientos empresariales del mundo. Nuestro ideal de desarrollo se debe enmarcar en lograr ” Mas y Mejores Empresas” y para ello necesitamos “Mas y Mejores Empresarios” ; y ellos nacen y se desarrollan en el entorno de la Mipyme.
Nuevas políticas de apoyo al desarrollo empresarial se requieren para lograr los indicadores de desarrollo que las Naciones Unidas han formulado para el 2030 y este hecho del Día de la Mipyme es una primera acción en esta dirección

The SME Finance Forum is proud to be among the early supporters of the UN International MSME Day. Small business account for 95% of businesses worldwide and provide half of all jobs. Yet 200 million businesses worldwide don’t have the financing they need to invest, grow and create jobs. We call on governments, regulators, banks and fintech companies to come together to address this challenge.
