Report of the survey MIQYES SME
The barometer of the SME in Tunisia labelled MIQYES measures annually since 2016, based on a survey of 500 leaders of SMEs from 6 to 199 employees, the evolution or regression of the Tunisian SME in terms of access to markets, competitiveness, access to finance, human resource management and the perception that these leaders have of the business environment. The questionnaire deployed is the same throughout the editions of MIQYES, with minor adaptations. A major adaptation took place in 2020 to integrate the Covid-19 and the effect of containment on SMEs. A special edition dedicated to SMEs in the 6 governorates of southern Tunisia took place at the end of 2017 and another special edition on VSEs employing 2 to 5 employees took place in 2019. Each edition is closed by the organization of a national conference to present the results and their analysis, testimonies of leaders and discussion panels and exchanges with experts.
