SME Infographic

A new infographic by peak business body the SME Association of Australia (SMEAA) has painted an interesting picture of the role small and medium enterprises (SMEs) play in the Australian economy.


The statistics used include some interesting facts such as SMEs employ 70 per cent of the Australian workforce, have a disproportionately high number of senior women and enjoy higher survival rates in South Australia and Tasmania than other states.


SMEAA CEO Dr Caroline Hong said the sector is a vital part of the Australian economy with around two million SMEs representing more than 99.7 per cent of actively trading businesses.
