A Global initiative to support SMEs in going digital

Co-organised by the OECD Centre for Entrepreneurship, SMEs, Regions, and Cities in cooperation with Business at OECD, the OECD Digital for SMEs Global Initiative (D4SME) intended to promote knowledge sharing and learnings on how different types of SMEs can seize the benefits of digitalisation, and on the role of government, regulators, business sectors and other institutions in supporting SME digitalisation. The D4SME contributes insights to the work of the OECD Committee on SMEs and Entrepreneurship (CSMEE). The research outputs and policy dialogue insights under the D4SME initiative, resulting from the co-operation among representatives from OECD governments and private sector, including business associations, entrepreneurs, large and small businesses, provide a complementary perspective on SME digitalisation and on the most effective policies to foster the digital transition of highly diverse SME populations.
The 5th D4SME Roundtable took place on Friday 19th April at OECD Headquarters, in Paris. Chaired by Italy’s Deputy Minister of Enterprise and Made in Itay, Mr. Valentino Valentini, with the participation of Deputy Ministers from Brazil, Korea, New Zealand, and Poland, it brought together stakeholders from the private and public sectors, academia, business associations, and entrepreneurs. Discussion focused on the Generative Aritifical Intelligence (AI) in SMEs: business uptake, digital skills, risk and digital security, regulation, and more.
