Chamber of Indian Micro Small & Medium Enterprises (CIMSME) has been the strong voice of the MSME sector, assisting them to move to the next level by spearheading their issues and concerns with the authorities. Nevertheless, despite covering substantial areas, challenges still hound them.

There are many challenges being faced by MSMEs despite the fact that SMEs play a vital role in the growth of an economy both, as a job creator and a contributor to the national income. This has been recognized by the economies across the globe leading to construction of the SME Exchanges in various developed and developing economies.
