Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises, Governmental Assistance, Export Performance.


In the current competitive scenario, every country's government is taking utmost care to encourage its MSMEs (Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises) via providing various assistance schemes including broad spectrum of programs like facilities for efficient product marketing, quality production, availability of easy credit, market research analysis, export facilitation, etc. India too, is consciously administering several such schemes to the aid of MSMEs, for fostering their production both in domestic and foreign markets. The current study aims to investigate the impact of some such schemes on the performance of select exporting MSME units. The sample for the study is constituted by exporting MSMEs belonging to Gujarat state of India. The findings reveal that these schemes are proving useful for strengthening the MSMEs in global markets; however, rigorous hard work needs to be directed at enhancing their capacity in production of quality items, along with supportive policy measures and sufficient infrastructure.
