The Agreement focuses on strengthening the development of micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) and entrepreneurship.

Stakeholders and counterparts include public sector reform champions, universities, BDS providers, mentors, business associations, investors, financial institutions, public organizations, MSMEs, and entrepreneurs.
