There is a widely held view that, due to their shorter life span, SMEs do not generate many jobs, but according to the study, this is not true: 50 per cent of total employment creation comes from enterprises with less than 100 employees. Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) play a key role in job creation, providing two thirds of all formal jobs in developing countries and up to 80 per cent in low income countries.
