National Bank of Pakistan and Small and Medium Enterprises Development Authority (SMEDA) inked a broad-based Memorandum of Understanding to promote Financial Inclusion, Diversity and Development of Small & Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in the country.

The MoU was signed by Arif Usmani, President & CEO NBP and Hashim Raza, Chief Executive Officer SMEDA.

Senior Officials of both organizations also attended the signing ceremony.

Mr. Usmani emphasized NBP’s commitment to become the Nation’s leading Bank for promoting sustainable growth and inclusive development.

During the MoU signing ceremony both NBP & SMEDA representatives agreed that there is a dire need to promote small and medium businesses’ growth in Pakistan as these account for 80% percent of non- agricultural labor force while their ability to access bank financing is generally very limited.
