The year 2019 was truly a momentous year for the Indian economy. With the Narendra Modi-led Government taking charge of its second stint at the Centre, India clearly has its vision set on becoming a US$ 5 trillion economy over the next 5 years. The new government in its first budget lays down a 10-point roadmap for achieving its vision, which includes a renewed thrust on the growth of the MSME sector.

The year 2019 also marked the 10th Anniversary of the most successful SME platform in India - Dun & Bradstreet’s SME Business Excellence Awards.
