Background
MSMEs are key drivers of economic growth, job creation and inclusive growth. However, access to finance, especially for MSMEs, remains largely limited in most emerging markets. Financing has been a long-time problem for MSMEs, which restrains them from sustainable development in the long run. The World Bank Enterprise Surveys and Investment Climate Surveys consistently note that MSMEs are 30% more likely than large firms to rate financing constraints as a major obstacle to their development and growth. Thus it is a common challenge for all the governments and financial institutions to address the issue of how to provide sufficient financing support, how to expand financing access and how to innovate financing pattern to promote sustainable development for MSMEs.
 
In order to promote inclusive growth, MSMEs financing, a pressing issue for all nations, especially for developing economies in the Asia-Pacific region, needs to be addressed by joint efforts of the governments, financial institutions and enterprises to enhance innovation in financial systems, products and services, and to improve the sustainable development of MSMEs.
 
The Asia-Pacific Finance and Development Center (AFDC) is established by the Chinese government aiming to strengthen institutional capacity building in the areas of finance and development for the developing economies in the Asia-Pacific region. MSMEs financing has been one of the focuses of AFDC’s capacity building programs and a number of training workshops and seminars on this topic has been organized by AFDC in recent years. AFDC wishes to further share related experience on this issue among the developing economies in the region to promote cooperation and inclusive development in the region.
