A word from the Chair of the Business at OECD SME and Entrepreneur

Dear Colleagues,

Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and entrepreneurs have been at the front line of global energy crisis and post-pandemic recovery for them will not be a return to business as usual as planned, and policies need to adapt to the new challenges facing our economies and societies.

As labor markets are being disturbed, we invite you to be a part of the selected team who will help us to identify how SMEs are surviving the energy crisis and what policies are needed to help weather this storm.

The aim of the survey to identify and illustrate how the energy crisis is impacting global SMEs survivability, and what decisions and policy actions could be useful for the challenges to come. We will use your responses to prepare targeted policy messages and recommendations to OECD and governments.

Individual company responses will be kept strictly confidential, and will only be used internally by the Business at OECD team. Only aggregated results will be used in public communications. The survey should take about 5 minutes to complete.

If you have any questions regarding the survey, please do not hesitate to contact Rokas Morkūnas at the Business at OECD Secretariat (morkunas@biac.org).

Many thanks for your contribution to our activities!


Kind regards,

Patrik Kovács
Chair of the Business at OECD SME and Entrepreneurship Committee
