Touring SMEs in the southern province of Guangdong, Wen said SMEs would play a crucial role in promoting economic growth, increasing fiscal revenue, providing jobs and maintaining social stability.

Wen visited SMEs in Shenzhen, Dongguan and Foshan cities, where he demanded local governments to readjust and improve policies to support the healthy and rapid growth of SMEs.

Measures should include easier access to credit extensions as well as preferential tax policies, and more loans to ensure SMEs grow faster in the fourth quarter.

Financing priority should be given to SMEs that met industrial and environmental protection standards and had technologies and markets, and should encourage firms to transform and restructure.

Wen said SMEs in Shenzhen performed better than those in other parts of the delta because they upgraded and innovated.

On Friday afternoon, while inspecting export-oriented, labor-intensive SMEs in Dongguan, he said the key to survival and growth was to develop new products, increase product ranges, improve quality and diversify markets.
