Centre planning to integrate MSMEs with big enterprises


The Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises is planning to set up enterprise facilitation centres across the country to make MSMEs more competitive and help them integrate with big enterprises, a senior official said Monday.

MSME ministry’s additional secretary Ram Mohan Mishra told reporters here that these centres, being planned to be set up at block levels, will help disseminate information to micro and small enterprises and detect issues faced by them.

The ministry is working on improving the capacity of enterprises that exist at the lower rung of supply chain so that they can organically join the chain and supply their material by improving quality and becoming price competitive, he said.

“We are trying to integrate big and small enterprises to facilitate the value chain,” Mishra said.

“Services are available in the market but others don’t know…we are working on developing enterprise facilitation centres at block level for information dissemination and diagnosis of troubles. The main focus is clustering,” he said.
