Russian Federation (Financing SMEs and Entrepreneurs 2016: An OECD Scoreboard)

The Russian Federation does not use the EU definition for SMEs (see ). Moreover, the criteria defining an SME are regularly changing (in 2005, 2009 and 2015), making it thus difficult to conduct a comparative analysis and regular assessments in respect of this segment. The Russian State Statistics Service undertakes a complete statistical census of SMEs every 5 years.
