Supporting SMEs in Central-Eastern Europe


  • László Borbás

    () (Óbuda University)


Supporting SMEs became one of the backbones of EU’s policy. “Small Business Act for Europe” is the key document, which decleares the strategy of the Community and at the same time is the basis of members’ national SME policies. For us it is even more important to be able to keep up at least with the Central- Eastern European countries in this field. In the present paper our goal is to access the position of these countries in their progress of supporting SMEs. “Small Business Act for Europe” is regurarly reviewed by the EU Commission, and concrete analysis of the member states is done in the form of country fact sheets. These documents provide us the basis for following the progress made in the 10 policy areas declared in SBA. From the point of view of the Central-Eastern European countries we make our comments and proposals for the interest of further progress in supporting SMEs.
