Second Track case study: OECD Working Party on SMEs and Entrepreneurship
Keywords:small and medium-sized enterprices (SMEs), Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, OECD working party on SMEs and entrepreneurship, SME policies
The importance of SMEs to national economies and international trade was not reflected in the policy deliberations of major international economic institutions such as the OECD and World Bank until the early 1990s, when an early example of the Second Track process changed the status quo. Olga Bodrova recounts the origins of OECD’s leading body on SME policies with insight from those who were there.
