Key Highlights of The Annual Report (2021-2022) of Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises

Key Highlights of Annual Report

We are already aware that small and medium-scale enterprises play a significant role in most economies. Such enterprises account for most of the business across the world. They significantly contribute to the development of the economy and creating jobs.

However, a key constraint to the growth of an SME is access to finance. Keeping this in mind, the annual report is being published by the Ministry of Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises to let people know more about the operations and working of MSMEs.

Some of the primary functions of the National Board of MSME are:

  • Making recommendations for facilitating the promotion, development, and enhanced competitiveness.
  • Examine all factors responsible for promoting and developing small, micro, and medium enterprises.
