ABSTRACT
This paper is based on a 45 country survey undertaken by the OECD/APEC economies titled 'Removing barriers to SME Access to International Markets'. The project aimed to gain a better understanding of the barriers to internationalising (defined as all those constraints that hinder the firm's ability to initiate, to develop, or to sustain business operations in overseas markets) faced by SMEs, and to share knowledge of government interventions to reduce those barriers. This paper presents the findings of this first global survey into international SMEs since 1997 and discusses the implications of the findings for international SMEs and policy makers.
