Entrepreneurial ventures, family businesses and small and medium-size enterprises (SMEs) in general play vital roles in every economy although the extent may differ from country to country. Besides contributing to the volume of output of goods and services in the economy, they create employment, form a springboard from which large firms leap, stimulate competition in the economy, feed large firms with raw materials, semi-finished goods, parts, etc. and distribute their products, and so on. However, the question of sustainability of small and medium-size businesses in the new and competitive global era following the competitive onslaughts of multinational companies and other large corporations has been raised. Policy makers around the world are also giving increasing attention to the issue of creating sustainable and resilient small and medium businesses. It is therefore important and timely to organize a conference in this area, to bring together policy makers, academics, the business community and researchers to interact and share their experiences from research and practice.
