SMEs also contribute a large share of the manufactured exports of the East Asia such as Taiwan, China, India and the Republic of Korea. In Malaysia, it is apparent that SMEs play a vital role in the economic development of the country. In spite of that, in developing this country, there are a lot of challenges faced by the Malaysian SMEs that may hinder their business operation.
