6 مـــــجــــلـــــس تــــنـــمـــيــة الـــمــنــــطـــقـــة الـغـربـــيــــة How can we ensure that development of Al Gharbia is sustainable?
7 مـــــجــــلـــــس تــــنـــمـــيــة الـــمــنــــطـــقـــة الـغـربـــيــــة Three types of challenges of sustainable development of the region Quality of life in small, dispersed communities Quality of teachers, doctors, other community service sectors are lower than in other parts of the Emirate Young people migration to big cities with more jobs and recreational activities Fragile environment Potential pressure on fragile desert, coast and marine environment from heavy industrial and transportation development Growing population, more guest workers and visitors raise challenges of resources management Limited opportunities for local business and growth Limited business opportunities to serve local population Limited chances to attract private investments in infrastructure & real estate currently Gap in skills among local entrepreneurs
8 مـــــجــــلـــــس تــــنـــمـــيــة الـــمــنــــطـــقـــة الـغـربـــيــــة SME sector is key to sustainability of economic development (Example of Korea) Share of contribution in 2008 (%) Growth ( ) Criteria 465.4X 5,420,197977SMEs Production (100M Won) 549X 6,255, Large Companies 495.8X 1,895,164325SMEs Value added* (100M won) 516.7X 1,953, Large Companies 778X 2,134,699266,822SMEs Number of employees ( Persons) 235X 661,339135,159 Large Companies Note: Value Added = Sales-Costs Strong SME sector is the major contributor to job creation and value added of the country
9 مـــــجــــلـــــس تــــنـــمـــيــة الـــمــنــــطـــقـــة الـغـربـــيــــة Majority of Al Gharbia SMEs are small, local services focused and dispersed Majority are micro and small businesses… … in retail and services … scattered across Al Gharbia Source: WRDC database of active National entrepreneurs in Al Gharbia (input from TAMM, DED licensing databases); total number ~280
10 مـــــجــــلـــــس تــــنـــمـــيــة الـــمــنــــطـــقـــة الـغـربـــيــــة For many Al Gharbia SMEs it is difficult to make money and survive Example of typical retail shop economics in Madinat Zayed (AED) SalesMonthlyAnnual 8 months a year 6,50052,000 4 summer months 1,2004,800 Total sales 56,800 ExpensesMonthlyAnnual Rental (2000AED/m2 for 20m2) -40,000 Labor & Utilities 2,900-34,800 Total cost -74,800 Profit -18,000 Al Gharbia SMEs focusing on serving local community (~70%) face challenges of making economics work -Low volumes due to small population size -High costs (especially rentals) due to lack of investment into real estate
11 مـــــجــــلـــــس تــــنـــمـــيــة الـــمــنــــطـــقـــة الـغـربـــيــــة Other challenges of Al Gharbia SME sector Entrepreneurs from Al Gharbia making business in traditional sectors (e.g. services, food and agriculture) are often at disadvantage vs. competitors located closer to main markets of Abu Dhabi City and Dubai (higher transportation costs, further away from technological innovations) ADNOC Group of companies and WR Municipality are so far major providers of real opportunities for local entrepreneurs, but opportunities are often in low value add contracting services There is a natural tendency from large companies to rely on their traditional, well established, often foreign suppliers and sub-contractors There is lack of regulation requiring big projects coming to Al Gharbia to procure from local suppliers and invest in their development WRDC needs help from ADSG members to support entrepreneurship spirit of Al Gharbia residents
12 مـــــجــــلـــــس تــــنـــمـــيــة الـــمــنــــطـــقـــة الـغـربـــيــــة How can members of Abu Dhabi Sustainability Group help?
13 مـــــجــــلـــــس تــــنـــمـــيــة الـــمــنــــطـــقـــة الـغـربـــيــــة What do local entrepreneurs really need Information Skills and knowledge Enablers & Funding Information about opportunities for sub- contracting and services around big projects Understanding of requirements of quality, time to deliver, etc. to win bids Information on government strategies (sectors, SMEs, etc.) Technical and business knowledge (value chain, economics, types of business models) of the sectors Support in enhancing business skills Recognition from large commercial entities and government that it takes time to develop strong SMEs Various options of financing solutions Government and semi- government procurement programs Real estate infrastructure (incubators, zones, offices) Laws and regulations to support National SME sector
14 مـــــجــــلـــــس تــــنـــمـــيــة الـــمــنــــطـــقـــة الـغـربـــيــــة Examples of government entities support The Republic of Kazakhstan adopted changes and amendments to the Law on public procurement in 2009, introducing a 'local clause' in the public procurement law for goods - 20%, services and construction - 15%, thus limiting the purchase of foreign goods, services and works. A company with more than 50% foreign shareholding is considered as foreign and therefore excluded from participation in public procurement tenders, unless it fulfils all of the following criteria making it a 'national producer': -the company is resident in Kazakhstan, -the company produces finished products in Kazakhstan, -the company uses no less than 85% of local workforce. South Korea Kazakhstan Consistent government support since 1963, growing SME share of employment to 77% Among key success factors -Protecting SME business areas and supporting efforts to secure domestic market -Promoting SME-only business sectors; SME product procurement system of public organizations. -Expanding sub-contracting businesses -Promoting policies for heavy and chemical industries from mid-1970s - more subcontracting for local companies as parts, materials and services suppliers replacing imported parts and materials (localization) -SME Start-up Support Act (1986); Special Measures on Venture business support (1997)
15 مـــــجــــلـــــس تــــنـــمـــيــة الـــمــنــــطـــقـــة الـغـربـــيــــة Examples of commercial entities support to local SMEs $12.7 B in service contracts and amendments to locally based companies $2.25B in material procurement to local market 27,000 jobs created for nationals in locally based contractors Entrepreneurship Support Centre established. 24 graduates and 123 currently enrolled Funding Ladies Projects partnering with ladies entrepreneurs foundation Local Content Unit within Aramco provides consultancy to local suppliers whose bids failed ARAMCO Korean Electric Power Corporation (KEPCO) Procuring $3.3B worth of goods from local small- and medium-size enterprises (SMEs) Providing $139m in “Power and Energy Loans” to financially ailing SMEs Providing SME suppliers with a total of $131M worth of support divided between network and procurement.
16 مـــــجــــلـــــس تــــنـــمـــيــة الـــمــنــــطـــقـــة الـغـربـــيــــة Preliminary ideas of how you can help (need further discussion) Share knowledge of your sector with your potential local SME suppliers through running seminars and courses Share skills development trainings that you provide to your employees with your local SME suppliers Review your procurement budgets, assess share of local SMEs in it today and identify areas where local SME suppliers may immediately or with time substitute foreign Require your procurement teams to learn about local potential suppliers and identify ways to make small guy next door your supplier with immediate effect or with time Encourage your existing local SME suppliers to increase quality of products and services in order to make them more competitive Encourage your current foreign suppliers to establish partnerships with local entrepreneurs in order to transfer knowledge and share profits with local communities
17 مـــــجــــلـــــس تــــنـــمـــيــة الـــمــنــــطـــقـــة الـغـربـــيــــة Plus… Make support to local SMEs (especially if you operate in Al Gharbia) part of your Abu Dhabi sustainability efforts, monitor and report progress in your annual reports
