Working Group on Eastern Partnership Enterprise Policy Development

Co-chaired by the European Commission (DG Enterprise), this Working Group provides a platform for regional policy dialogue and the exchange of good practices on enterprise policy. The Working Group complements the assessment process of the first SME Policy Index in Eastern Partner countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Republic of Moldova, Ukraine) and involves both SME policy makers and business community representatives from the region.

During the first working group meeting, held on 25 October 2010 in Brussels, the OECD and its partner organisations presented the proposed project to representatives from all Eastern Partner countries, which agreed to pursue a similar approach for the Eastern Partner region based on a common policy assessment framework derived from the Small Business Act for Europe.

The second working group meeting, held on 15 June 2011 in Prague, provided a forum for the exchange of good practices and a discussion of initial findings of the enterprise policy performance self-evaluation. As part of the meeting, a business roundtable was organised as a platform for dialogue between potential investors and the delegations of the Eastern Partner countries.
