Evaluation of business association membership on small and medium enterprises’ growth performance: Evidence from enterprise survey of Cambodia

There is growing attention on small and medium enterprises (SMEs) within academic circles and policy discussions. It is widely argued that SMEs play a vital role in enhancing economic growth and competitiveness, helping to reduce poverty in both developing and industrialized economies. The effects are particularly profound in developing countries, where SMEs contribute a large portion of domestic production and employment (Ayyagari et al., 2011).
