Business Development Services[edit]

Small enterprises usually create a high percentage of total employment in developing and transition countries. They play an essential role in securing income and employment for millions of people and in creating new jobs. Governments, donors, and technical agencies have been trying to overcome constraints on small enterprises to boost their employment creation and growth potential by applying various measures such as financial schemes [3], interventions to improve the business environment at local level and increasing access to Business Development Services. MSE support schemes [4] have been around for a long time.

However, many of the existing promotional activities, mainly delivered through government agencies or strongly subsidized programmes, were not achieving the outreach desired[5]. Many entrepreneurs were not getting access to these services. It was recognized that a new approach to delivering Business Development Services was needed. This paper evaluates market-oriented Business Centres that were set up with the technical assistance [6] of the International Labour Organization and compares them with those set up by other agencies.
