SME Pillar Session 1 - Navigate Policy Decisions Beyond the Turbulent Times
Regulatory evolution to improve the business environment for SMEs is a process, not a one-off event. Policy decision taken at all levels (supra-national, national, regional and local) will shape the strength of economic renewal and social well-being.
This session will pose a series of questions: How is policy designed in practice to navigate during and beyond the pandemic? What instruments are available? How can more creative solutions be found? In seeking answers, the experts and officials will explore the qualities of good policy-making, approaches to longer-term strategic planning, stakeholder consultation and co-responsibility with residents and businesses.
