Integrating Southeast Asian SMEs in Global Value Chains

15 Mar 2019
Bangkok, Thailand
Open meeting

This event will discuss the recently launched OECD UNIDO report. The report identifies investment and related policies to enhance linkages between SMEs in Southeast Asia. It draws on evidence collected through an enterprise survey in Thailand and factfinding missions in Lao PDR, Malaysia, Thailand and Viet Nam. In this hour-long side event, moderated by ESCAP, the representatives of OECD and UNIDO will present key findings and policy interventions suggested in the Report. As the event is open to all participants of the Asia-Pacific Trade and Investment Week, it is hoped that it will provide an opportunity for a dialogue on how to improve policy formulation and coordination with a focus on promoting equitable and responsible economic development.

This event is organized as part of the Sixth Asia-Pacific Trade and Investment Week, 11-15 March 2019.
