The SME commission was created in 2017 to enable small and very small businesses to speak at CIES. The members found that the issues addressed in the various meetings of the CIES were sometimes far removed from the daily reality of companies with less than 50 employees where the entrepreneur, often founder of its structure, can be isolated.
In general, the SME commission is a place of mutual aid where everyone is brought to share their experiences in order to solve certain administrative and tax problems or to find quality providers.
Many works in progress allow business leaders to work on topics such as improving banking services, financing of very small businesses / SMEs, pooling resources or grouped responses to calls for tenders.
