MSMEs contribute to the creation of wealth, employment, and income generation, both in rural and urban areas, thus, ensuring a more equitable income distribution. They also provide the economy with a continuous supply of ideas, skills, and innovations necessary to promote competition and the efficient allocation of scarce resources.
In the last five years, the MSME sector accounted for about 99.6% of the registered businesses in the country by which 63% of the labor force earn a living. Around 35.7% of the total sales and value added in the manufacturing come from MSMEs as well.
