This webinar is organised jointly by the OECD Centre for Entrepreneurship, SMEs, Regions and Cities and the Council of Europe Development Bank (CEB).
Small businesses and entrepreneurs around the world were hard hit by the COVID-19 crisis, often relying on government support to survive the initial shock, prolonged restrictions and a drop in demand for their products and services. Yet, they remain critical to forge the path to recovery, provide employment and be part of innovative solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges, such as the climate crisis, while also ensuring that no one is left behind. Sustained access to a diverse range of financing instruments will be crucial to continued contributions by SMEs and entrepreneurs to sustainable and inclusive growth.
This webinar, organised by the OECD Centre for Entrepreneurship (OECD/CFE), SMEs, Regions and Cities and the Council of Europe Development Bank (CEB), will bring together experts, policy makers, financial institutions and SME representatives to discuss some of the key issues around SME financing today.
