The course provides examples of promising practices relating to SME development and enterprise formalization, as well as space for tripartite actors and practitioners to reflect on the country adaptation of interventions models that work. Participants will discuss the constraints and challenges faced by SMEs and micro-enterprises in the informal economy, and will share and exchange on policies and strategies that have been adopted in some countries to overcome such constraints with a view to facilitating the transition of enterprises to the formal sector. Measures such as taxation, administrative obligations, social security, legislation (commercial, labour, property), enforcement, enterprise upgrading (access to markets, access to technology, credit and inputs, access to skills) and legal protection will be presented and their effectiveness reviewed.
