About WASME ICSME

Annual International Conference on SMEs

WASME's annual International Conference on Small and Medium Enterprise development (ICSME) is a prestigious event, which brings together under one roof, business support organisations, policy makers, banks and financial institutions, international experts, academics, entrepreneurs, UN and other international and multi-national Aid Agencies concerned with small business development. This is an excellent platform for sharing expertise, experience and emerging best practices and provides ample opportunity in establishing new contacts and business linkages.
