You've Heard of the G20. How About the G20 SME Conference?

The G20 comprises of 19 member states plus the European Union and was established in 1999.  The purpose of the G20 SME Conference is to convene a meeting of local and international experts to discuss key challenges relevant to Australia’s G20 agenda for the SME sector in Australia and the wider international community.

The G20 SME Conference held June 20, 2014 drew together around 117 delegates representing a wide cross-section of the business, government and not-for-profit community with specific interests or roles in small business and entrepreneurship.
This enthusiasm for the G20 was evidenced on Friday 20 June at the “G20 Agenda for Growth: Opportunities for SMEs Conference."  The event was organised by the Australian Minister for Small Business, the Hon Bruce Billson and the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ACCI). It was held in Melbourne at the Victorian Parliament House’s Legislative Assembly Chamber.
Primary focus for the G20 SME conference:
  1. Role of SMEs in helping to meet the G20's target of 2% higher growth over the period to 2018.
  2. How to enable growth among SMEs.
