access to finance for small & medium business.In order to explain
these changes to owners of SMEs, UEAPME – the European Federation of
Organisations of SME’s and the European Savings Banks Group have joined forces
to implement the European Commission’s commitment to ensure that owners of small
and medium sized businesses are aware of the access to finance mechanisms which
are available and that will be applied in the future. The new schemes will
encourage the Banks to offer enhanced financing packages for SMEs based on a
favourable credit rating system. The new schemes will provide for an
adoption by SME managers of new business behaviour to comply with the new
capital requirements.Owners of SME’s in Member States of the EU are
being invited by UEAPME and ESBG to attend a One-Day National Training
Conference to learn more about these developments. A total of 60 training
