Countries in the Southeast Asian region have huge communities of small to medium scale enterprises (SMEs), many of whom employ thousands of workers and contribute to their GDP. In fact, most Southeast Asian countries have more SMEs as registered businesses than large enterprises. The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) puts the number of SMEs at 96 percent of all enterprises and employing up to 85 percent of overall workforce. SMEs also account for up to 30 percent of exports and contribute around 50 percent of GDP.

The data they collect in the past should guide them in their future needs.
