Product-level analysis in SADC: implications for regional value chains

Methodology

* evidence based

* how it's organised

* how it functions

* main actors

* coordination

* performance in terms of coordination, competition, regional trade

Through this - identify key drivers and aim to identify role of lead firms

and identify any duplication

 

3. Anna Ngarachu, Tutwa Consulting Group

Measures to support SMEs overcome barriers to entry

 * SMEs unaware of standards

* Costly and arduous process

* Market structure and contractual agreement 

* Online access and support on certifications costs

 * On the topic of access to adequate financing - SMEs need more innovative financing like equity funding. Important that they don't get caught in a debt trap. So not just debt financing. 

* best way to support SMEs from the private sector, is to help grow from an SME to a QSE.
