"Public Policies to Promote the Internationalization of MSMEs"
 November 1 - 2, 2010, Mexico D.F.

The Department of Economic Development, Trade and Tourism of the Organization of American States (OAS), in coordination with the Ministry of Economy and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Mexico, organized the Dialogue “Public Policies to Enhance the Competitiveness of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs),” held in Mexico City, November 1-2, 2010.

This Dialogue took place in the framework of Mexico’s National Week of SMEs, which was held from November 1-5.

The purpose of this meeting, funded by the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA), was to promote a regional high-level dialogue on MSMEs competitiveness enhancement policies, and to encourage the exchange of successful experiences and best practices to strengthen the competitiveness of this sector. To achieve this objective, we invited Ministers and Vice Ministers of Economy and authorities responsible for the portfolio of MSMEs in Latin America and the Caribbean, as well as entities that promote MSMEs innovation and internationalization policies designed for micro, small and medium enterprises.
