Small Business Competitiveness Programme (SBC)

Developed by: ILO


The ILO’s SBC learning modules provide start-up and operational guidance to enterprises and entrepreneurs in a number of tourism sectors. SBC was developed to target the 245-296 million SMEs in South and Southeast Asia, many of which are currently not served by conventional business development and support services for reasons such as social and geographic isolation, inequality, resource constraints, and lack of empowerment in some communities.

Paid/Free: Free
