FRANKFURT, November 1, 2010 - At the "G-20 SME Finance Challenge", the European Fund of Southeast Europe (EFSE) was selected as one of the 14 best Public-Private partnership (PPP) models in the world for the financing of small and medium enterprises (SMEs). 345 competitors from more than 75 countries participated in this challenge. EFSE was the only German competitor amongst the winners. The competition initiated by the G-20 political leaders of industrialised and emerging economies during the 2009 Annual Summit in Pittsburgh was launched to identify catalytic and innovative interventions to unlock private finance for SMEs. SMEs play a major role in economic development, particularly in emerging economies. SMEs are the single largest contributor to employment and job creation, and account for a significant share of GDP around the world. The winners will be invited to the next G-20 Summit in Seoul, South Korea, where the prize will be officially awarded.
