This dramatic growth in trade has been characterized by gradual diversification from raw materials and primary commodities to manufactures. SMEs have played a crucial role in shaping that trend. At the same time, there exists a widely shared perception that the development and strengthening of the capacity of export-oriented SMEs in the region would enable developing countries to take advantage of emerging opportunities in international markets.
