Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are now able to seek help via a newly-released guidebook covering 38 State support schemes meant for them.

Introduced at a workshop in the northern province of Vinh Phuc on July 7, the guidebook will offer them helpful insight into management, information technology, taxation and finance, and assistance units at the central and local levels.

Speaking at the event, Deputy Minister of Planning and Investment Dang Huy Dong called for constructive feedback on the schemes, making it easier to bring benefits to SMEs.

A majority of attendees gave nod of satisfaction to the guidebook, adding that closer coordination among ministries and agencies is also needed in order to clear business hurdles.-VNA
