The two-day re­gional busi­ness con­fer­ence of the Small and Medium En­ter­prises De­vel­op­ment Author­ity (SMEDA) con­cluded here to­day with a con­sen­sus to share vi­able ideas, knowl­edge and strengths of the or­ga­ni­za­tion with pro­vin­cial gov­ern­ments as well as in­ter­na­tional de­vel­op­ment agen­cies for pro­mo­tion of the SME sec­tor in the coun­try.

Com­ment­ing on rec­om­men­da­tions of the RBCs, SMEDA Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer hief took a num­ber of prompt de­ci­sions and ad­vised them to strengthen their net­work­ing with busi­ness community as well as the pub­lic sec­tor or­ga­ni­za­tions work­ing for eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment in four prov­inces of the coun­try.

He es­pe­cially em­pha­sized to evolve joint ven­tures with pro­vin­cial gov­ern­ment of Baluchis­tan so as to boost up the eco­nomic ac­tiv­ity in the prov­ince. He ap­proved to set fo­cus of the cur­rent year’s ini­tia­tives on de­vel­op­ment of mi­cro and small en­ter­pises so as to en­cour­age the lower and mid­dle class en­trepreneurs to be­come ac­tive part of the econ­omy. The pre-fea­si­bil­ity stud­ies and busi­ness plans to be de­vel­oped this year should pri­mar­ily cover mi­cro and small scale busi­nesses, he added and also ad­vised to draw at­ten­tion of the in­ter­na­tional donor agen­cies like USAID, World Bank and UNIDO to­wards the prov­ince of Baluchis­tan like it has been done in Khy­ber Phakhtoon Khawa.
