9. edition of the European SME Congress

Government supports SME

Thursday, March 28, 2019

For the ninth time, the International Congress Center will become an important place on the local government map of Poland. During the European Congress of Small and Medium-size Enterprises (16-18 October) the final of the program "Government supports SME" will take place.

It is a program that is part of the SME Congress from the very beginning. It is directed to local government units at the voivodship, poviat and local levels. The aim of the program is to select and promote local governments, which provide enterprises in the SME sector with favorable conditions for running business and in a special way support its development.

Stages of the program "Self-government supports SMEs":

  • Stage I - Call for applications
  • Stage II - Preselection
  • Stage III - the Chapter of the Chapter
  • Stage IV - Final Gala
  • Stage V - Presentation of distinctions

As a result of the analysis of applications and questionnaires sent by participants, the Chapter will select the winners who will receive the certificate and the promotional title and logo  "Government supports SME". Awarding a certificate in one of the program categories is tantamount to granting the Marshal, the Starost, the President, the Mayor or the Mayor a distinction and the statuette of "Leader supporting SMEs".

The finale of the ninth edition of the program will take place during a ceremonial gala planned for one of the three days of the European Congress of Small and Medium-sized Enterprises.

In the years 2011-2018, eight editions took place. Last year, a record number of applications was received. Among the previous Program Winners there were, among others: Wrocław, Gliwice, Bydgoszcz, Olesno, Dąbrowa Górnicza, Koszalin, Legnica, Czechowice-Dziedzice and many others.

As the previous winners of the program emphasize, finding oneself in the group of its winners is not only strengthening the image in the environment, but also confirming the special care for the development of the SME sector.

Certainly, receiving such a prestigious distinction from the hands of the most important representatives of the business world gives the local government many new opportunities and opens new paths of cooperation with business entities.
