The program of the first day of the Moscow Financial Forum on September 6 will include a session titled "How to Enhance SME Development?".

The experience of developed countries suggests that small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) form the basis of the modern economy. However, in Russia contribution of SMEs to key macroeconomic indicators is currently significantly smaller than in OECD countries.

In accordance with the targets set in the Executive Order on National Goals and Strategic Objectives of the Russian Federation until 2024 signed by the President in May this year, by 2025 employment in the SME sector should increase to 25 million people. Participants of the business session will discuss mechanisms for the achievement of these targets.

In addition, well-developed SME support infrastructure has emerged in recent years. What else needs to be done to give new impetus for the development of entrepreneurship? This is one of the topical questions that speakers and guests of the Forum will seek to answer.
