Concept note
Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) contribute significantly to industrial, technological and regional development in all developed and developing economies. In India it contributes around 45% of industrial output, 40% of exports, employs 60 million people, creates 1.3 million jobs every year and produces more than 8000 quality products for the Indian and international markets. These enterprises help to build a thriving entrepreneurial eco-system in addition to developing and promoting the use of indigenous technologies. Though the sector has exhibited consistent growth over the years, its growth has been constrained due to several factors often resulting in inefficient resource utilization. Among the many challenges impeding the growth and development of MSMEs, of particular importance is the issue of adequate and timely access to financial resources including insurance. This issue becomes the main bottleneck as it makes the setting up, running and scaling up of these enterprises a challenge to the growth of this sector as this sector has great potential and opportunities for growth. The proposed seminar intends to examine various aspects of the MSME with special attention to the financial services available and utilised by these enterprises.

Objectives of the Seminar
The seminar proposes to invite discussions, share research findings and debate policy issues relating to the functioning, growth, opportunities and challenges faced by this important segment of the industrial sector. The seminar is expected to enhance the knowledge of participants regarding the process that MSMEs need to follow in order to have effective financial management and entrepreneurial mindset among MSMEs and other MSME stakeholders.
