Tebbutt gets SME census underway in PNG

14/11/2013
After months of planning and desk research, Tebbutt Research is in the field with the Small to Medium Enterprise (SME) Baseline Survey under the PNG SME Access to Finance Project.  This important project for the Government of Papua New Guinea (through the Department of Commerce and Industry) is funded by the World Bank Group and is going to provide rich data on the SME segment in the country.  Key stakeholders in the country, and especially Government, have been hampered by the lack of reliable data and this survey is a significant step in rectifying this.

“This survey will allow SMEs to voice their opinion and state what they face.  The survey when completed will provide the important data required by the department to develop its SME Capacity Building Program, targeting the needs of SMEs in respective provinces and regions.”  John Andrias, Secretary Dept of Trade, Commerce & Industry.   
 
The survey is being conducted in all 22 provinces of Papua new Guinea, in urban, rural and remote areas.  Fieldwork will finish in December.
