The Edinburgh Group has commissioned research, titled 'Growing the Global Economy through SMEs', on the impact of SMEs on economic growth in order to develop a picture of the role of SMEs in the global economy.  SMEs contribute to economic growth in both high and low income countries by sustaining employment and contributing to GDP.  The research also provided the opportunity to look at the internationalisation potential of SMEs through surveying members of the EG bodies.
