SME Season

In 2019, the Ukrainian Government should complete the implementation of the Strategy for SME development until 2020 (Strategy) and develop a new strategic document in this area. That is why the Business Ombudsman Council (BOC) has decided to devote its new systemic report to evaluation of the Strategy implementation and issue recommendations for further public policy prospects in this area. USAID Competitive Economy Program (Program) decided to support the BOC in assessing the current state of the Strategy implementation and identifying major gaps in policy, regulatory burdens and administrative barriers for SMEs as well as improvements, which can be expected in the respective areas. This focus group results will be used for shaping recommendations of the USAID Program and the BOC on the objectives and components of a new strategic document on SMEs development to be developed and approved by the Government of Ukraine.
