SMEs and Public Procurement Policies in Egypt: The Case of Small and Medium Pharmaceutical Industries

Topic: L3. Nonprofit Organizations and Public Enterprise L2. Firm Objectives, Organization, and Behavior L1. Market Structure, Firm Strategy, and Market Performance


Status:
ongoing Project


The authors of this project believe that it is crucial to carry out a comprehensive assessment of how SMEs operating in the pharmaceuticals sector behave in tenders. This would enable the development of an integrated governance framework to create a better economic environment for those SMEs. The research will answer the following questions: What is the framework governing pharmaceutical SMEs working in Egypt? What is its impact on SMEs ability to compete for public tenders? What is the governing framework of the public tender market; in what way or to what extent is it designed in favor of SMEs participation? What are the parallels and divergences of the situation in Egypt to general findings? Do SMEs activities show any interdependence between the private and public tender markets? And if so, what are the possible implications of such interdependence on the three key stakeholders: public sector; private distributers; and SMEs.
