Russian Small and Medium-sized Enterprises Forum: Cooperation
Congress Centre, zone B, 2nd floor, conference hall B2

The Declaration of interaction between big business and SMEs delineates five spheres of collaboration: market accessibility, production and administrative process modernization, infrastructure and financing access, and human capital development. How does this interaction contribute to the growth of SME productivity, enhancement of management quality in companies, and the subsequent expansion of small businesses? What are the expectations of big business from small enterprises in terms of fostering a responsible approach? What are the potential areas of engagement that should be included in future iterations of the Declaration?
