One of the important activities of centers “Friend of SMEs” will include supporting SMEs in accordance with the requirements of their sustainable development. Activities in this direction will be aimed, on one hand, at enhancing the possibilities of using existing state support mechanisms, ensuring unhindered and free access of SMEs to this support, and on the other hand, at applying numerous support mechanisms that will be provided by the agency.

The houses of SMEs operate under the Agency for the Development of SMEs created on the basis of a decree of Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev dated December 2017.
