Dear Sir or Madam,

We would like to invite you to actively participate in the work of the International scientific conference “Small and Medium  Enterprises – Possibilities and Perspectives 2020“, which will take place on 16th and 17th March 2020, at The International University of Novi Pazar, Serbia, with Your scientific and professional paper (report, study or debate).

The international scientific conference “SMEPP2020” accepts and publishes scientific and professional papers and the results of interdisciplinary scientific research, whose area of interest is development of Small and Medium Enterprises.

SMEs are major employers and contributors to development of modern economies. Globalization and integration processes have made borders less important and SMEs more exposed to intense competition, but also gave them new opportunities. Therefore, development of SMEs in the time of globalization and integration demands continuous efforts in finding new ways and concepts to integrate SMEs into The Global Economy. This is especially relevant for SMEs in Serbia where new opportunities and threats emerge with each step towards EU integrations.

The international scientific Conference Small and Medium  Enterprises – Possibilities and Perspectives 2020“ (SMEPP 2020) is a forum that will allow decision makers, academics, researchers, business stakeholders and experts to meet and share knowledge and valuable experience in order to create better communication linkages and networking opportunities for the future. Therefore, we use this opportunity to cordially invite you to participate actively in the Conference.

Thematic areas and subtopics of The Conference will help you to identify the most appropriate dialogue to which you might wish to contribute with your work.
