797 views

In 2011, SME week will be held on 3-9 October and its aim is to provide information on the support provided by the EU and national, regional and local authorities to micro, small and medium-sized businesses; to promote entrepreneurship and to give recognition to entrepreneurs for their contribution to Europe's welfare, jobs, innovation and competitiveness.To illustrate this, the European Commission's audiovisual service has produced a 3-part series of video stockshots covering:Part 1 (070899):- Cross Country Cooperation - Food Cluster - Aviation ClusterPart 2 (070900):- Green Industry - Forestry and Agriculture - Food Industry - Women in Business - Erasmus for Young EntrepreneursPart 3 (070901):- Innovation- Entrepreneurship- Social Inclusion.The 23 million SMEs in the EU represent 99% of businesses, and are a key driver for economic growth, innovation, employment and social integration. The European Commission (EC) aims to promote successful entrepreneurship and improve the business environment for SMEs, to allow them to realise their full potential in today's global economy.The EC works on broad policy issues affecting entrepreneurship and SMEs across Europe, and assists SMEs through networks and business support measures. It helps existing and potential entrepreneurs to grow their businesses, giving special attention to women entrepreneurs, crafts and social economy enterprises.The Small Business Act for Europe (SBA) embodies the EU's commitment to SMEs and entrepreneurship. Member States have committed to implementing the SBA alongside the EC in an effort to make the EU a better place to do business.Since SMEs have to be supported at local level, the EC helps Member States and the regions to develop policies aimed at promoting entrepreneurship, assisting SMEs at all stages of development, and helping them to access global markets. The identification and exchange of good practices are key elements of this policy.
