The duties carried out by the Secretariat are as varied as the issues dealt with by the ISSME. These include building synergies between the activities of micro and Small & Medium Enterprises (SMEs) across the world and the enabling framework and programmes of Governments and Non-Government Organisations working for the promotion of the sector.
The Secretariat carries out the day-to-day work of the organization. It services the other principal organs of the ISSME and administers the programmes and policies laid down by them. At its head is the Secretary-General, who is appointed by the Governing Body for five-years, with the option of a renewable term.
The ISSME Secretariat, consisting of a small international team of experienced small business representatives, keeps its members, affiliates and partners abreast of the latest developments in the sector. It coordinates campaigns to represent the interests of small and medium enterprises globally. It ensures the representation of ISSME in relevant international consultations and political forums and maintains regular contact with the global media.
The ISSME Secretariat also maintains close contacts with other business organizations across the globe, which enables it to form strong alliances where needed, facilitating increased political influence on key business issues.
At all times, the ISSME Secretariat is available to answer specific questions and offer support and advice to small business entrepreneurs.
