Financing Growth ; SMEs in Global Value Chains

The B20 Turkey Presidency in 2015 offered an important contribution to unlocking opportunities for SME financing in GVCs, and this work is being carried on by the B20 China Presidency this year to deepen our understanding of what actions are required and how they can be implemented. Crucially, this requires a comprehensive and coordinated G20 approach in which public and private sectors have complementary roles to play. In contribution to the G20 China Presidency in 2016, this publication builds on a Roundtable on Financing SMEs in Global Value Chains held on 31 May 2016 and presents a compilation of perspectives on the new opportunities and inherent challenges that face SMEs as they seek to finance their activities in global markets.
