European Training Foundation, Turin (Italy).
This study identifies opportunities in three Mediterranean countries Egypt, Lebanon, and Jordan, for improving the support available for management and entrepreneurial development to stimulate growth of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). After an executive summary, Part 1 provides an analysis of the situation across the three countries, identifying common trends in management development support for SMEs in the countries that could form a basis for actions to be taken at a multi-country level. Part 2 provides an analysis of the situation in each country. The analysis includes an overview of the socioeconomic context; summary of the situation in regard to SMEs, the environment in which they operate and their potential for growth; a critical overview of the training and support currently available to managers and entrepreneurs in SMEs; and an overview of the support and impact created by donors' interventions. Recommendations on how to improve the training and support are given at the end of the analysis. (YLB)
