Many business enterprises in developing countries lack the technical, financial, and managerial capacity to participate successfully in the global economy. Abt Associates works through competitiveness projects to give micro-, small-, and medium-sized enterprises hands-on training and technical assistance in business planning and operations, marketing, job training, trade agreements, exporting, supply chain management, and best finance practices, helping them attract crucial investment and access credit., We help them make vital market connections and learn buyer requirements first-hand through trade shows, trade missions, industry analyses and B2B forums. 

Abt helps our clients generate dialogue between the public and private sector and upgrade the skills of existing and entering workforces to respond to market demand. Input from emerging enterprises informs our work with government ministries, regulatory agencies, and policymakers to develop and reform institutional frameworks that encourage sustainable private sector growth.
