Logroño, (EFE).- Small and medium-sized companies (SMEs) in Spain, in general, and in La Rioja, in particular, miss the arrival of financing to be able to implement digitization and sustainability policies in their production processes.
It is one of the conclusions of the report «Study of SMEs 2022. Digitization and sustainable development of small and medium-sized companies in the La Rioja region. A comparative analysis with Spain”, prepared by the UNIR-FAEDYME Small and Medium Enterprise Competitiveness Observatory.
The report was presented this Tuesday, in Logroño, within the conference “Digitalization and sustainable development of small and medium-sized companies in La Rioja”, organized by the International University of La Rioja (UNIR) and the Foundation for Strategic Analysis and SME Development (FAEDPYME).
The study has delved into two “fundamental” parameters, which are “critical” in SMEs, which are the concept of digitization and sustainability policies, explained its director and principal investigator of the Observatory, José Antonio Clemente.
From the study of La Riojan SMEs, compared to the situation of Spanish SMEs, it can also be deduced that there has been a “great progress” in sustainability and digitization policies, although there are issues to improve, he indicated. EFE
