The environment has improved for SMEs, but access to finance remains a key constraint for their growth, with a $1 trillion credit gap remaining globally IFC’s work with the G20 identified a number of areas that policy makers need to consider in further supporting SMEs. These recommendations have also driven IFC’s own strategy to support the financing of 10 million SMEs by 2020 SMEs are a key segment in Sri Lanka representing some 50%+ of GDP, but access to finance remains a constraint. Our strategy for Sri Lanka is focusing upon addressing key areas, including: 1) Informality 2) Gender 3) furthering FI outreach with focus on post-conflict and lagging regions, as well as targeting specific growth sectors such as agriculture and tourism IFC as market leader in this space has the investment and advisory products and services needed to further support SME growth in Sri Lanka Key Messages 2
