A Brief About Activities Undertaken

Over a period of time, it has been observed that unbalanced management skills in micro, small and medium enterprises are a major cause for early sickness and non-performance in the MSME sector. One of the effective ways to address strategic issues which are faced by MSMEs, is to have an ongoing process of productive stakeholders consultation for sustainable development. The core of the development is the urge for working together.

Sustainable development demands continuous dialogue and close cooperation among the private sector, industry associations, suppliers, consumers, civil society groups, development partners, Government and non-government organizations. Participative learning needs facilitations among the stakeholders.

For achieving the objective of stakeholders consultation, Indian Institute of Corporate Affairs (IICA)through its Centre for MSME intends to operate through a multilevel and a multi-stakeholder approach to ensure capacity building at both ends : at the government level as well as at the industries.
