It includes proposals on measures to provide an enabling environment in three areas – consumer and micro/small enterprise lending, grassroots savings mobilization, and remittances. The last part of the forum was devoted to a discussion of the OECD’s reviews of SME and entrepreneurship issues and policies in Thailand, and the prospects for utilizing this process more broadly as a tool for improving the design and delivery of policy and for information sharing in the region.
