The fifth Policy Actions for COVID-19 Economic Recovery (PACER) Dialogue on “Bouncing back support to SMEs for COVID-19 recovery” featured phased approaches to manage and mitigate COVID-19 impacts, and build-back more sustainable, inclusive, and resilient economies. Over 130 participants including government officials and SME representatives from Southeast Asia and the People’s Republic of China participated in the Dialogue, sharing knowledge and country experiences and lessons on SMEs policies and measures taken to mitigate the negative effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and accelerate recovery.

- disseminate global best practices and lessons on how SMEs could “bounce back better” from the COVID-19 pandemic; and
