Drive your SME to Success: CFO Challenges in the SME Sector
As a driving force for innovation, employment and economic 
 
development, SMEs play a very important role in a country’s 
 
economy. However, financing has been a problem that has been 
 
troubling SMEs for a long time, which restrains them from 
 
sustainable development in the long run. On one hand, financing 
 
through equity and debt are often attached with many strings; while 
 
on the other, the traditional financing access and patterns can not 
 
provide adequate funds to support the SMEs. As a result, it is a 
 
common challenge for both the government and financial institutions 
 
to address the issues of how to provide sufficient financing support, 
 
expand access to finance, innovate financing pattern, and promote 
 
sustainable development for SMEs. The session will also focus on 
 
issues affecting SME CFOs in the region helping them to guide their 
 
firm to success, while seizing the abundant prospects of the Golden 
 
Age.
Key Topics of Discussion:
Tax Reforms and their impact on SMEs
Importance of Credit Rating
Handling Company Finances - maximizing profits, 
 
maintain liquidity and financial stability, with or without increased 
 
sales
Financial Contingency Planning & Management
Transforming Finance for Value Creation
Investment and Partnership opportunities in the SME 
 
sector
Promoting sustainable development for the SMEs in the 
 
region, amid the financial crisis
