Established in 1993, the Small and Medium Industries Development Organisation (SMIDO) caters for the development of small and medium enterprises (SME) with a view to enhancing the inputs of such enterprises in the overall industrial development of Mauritius and Rodrigues. Its mission is, therefore, to promote the development of SMEs and enhance their competitiveness.

Government has introduced a series of measures to encourage the development of small and medium entreprises in order to generate employment in the country. SMIDO is now exploiting economic opportunities abroad by encouraging Mauritian entrepreneurs to enter into joint ventures with overseas' partners to benefit from their know-how and access to their markets. In this context, it is providing facilities to benefit from the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA), the Cotonou Agreement and the Southern African Development Community/Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (SADC/COMESA), amongst others. SMIDO is also encouraging foreign direct investment in SMEs for both the regional and global market

The structure comprises five units: Administrative and Finance, Training/Consultancy and Benchmarking, Business Facilitation and Counselling, Technical Services and Marketing and Information Services. We are reinforcing the Marketing and Information Services Unit to enable SMIDO to meet its objectives more effectively.
