By 2025, overcome unconnectedness of Micro-, Small- and Medium-sized Enterprises (MSMEs) by 50%, by sector
This target is particularly ambitious for MSMEs in those sectors that remain largely unconnected, and incentivizes well-connected sectors to close the fi nal gap. As an example, a sector in which MSMEs are 80% unconnected, will have only 40% unconnected by 2025, and a sector in which MSMEs are 30% unconnected will have only 15% unconnected by 2025.
Currently, MSMEs have lower levels of connectivity than large enterprises in the same sectors. Making sure that MSMEs are connected improves their competitiveness in expanding digital economies where online business transactions are increasingly the norm
