Small and Medium Enterprise AgencyCabinet Decision on the Basic Plan for the Promotion of Small Enterprises

The Basic Act for Promoting Small Enterprises (Small Enterprises Promotion Act) stipulates that the Government of Japan should formulate a Basic Plan for the Promotion of Small Enterprises.

The basic plan aims to facilitate the measures for promoting the businesses of small enterprises in a comprehensive and systematic manner. To achieve the goal, the Cabinet decided to approve the plan on October 3, 2014.

Based on the Basic Act for Promoting Small Enterprises, which was enacted during the 186th ordinary Diet session, the Government of Japan decided to establish the basic plan, so as not only to facilitate the measures for promoting the businesses of small enterprises in a comprehensive and systematic manner but also to ensure the well-focused, effective implementation of necessary measures under the framework of a consistent and continuous policy.

The basic plan sets the following four goals: [i] promoting business management that should be implemented for future demand; [ii] promoting business renovation; [iii] facilitating business activities contributing to regional economies; and [iv] developing a system for supporting small enterprises by uniting all the efforts of communities. To achieve the goals, the Government of Japan will carry out ten prioritized measures.
