    The dynamic role of small and medium scale enterprises(SMEs) in developing countries have been highly emphasised. These enterprises have been identified as the means through which the rapid industrialisation and other developmental goals of these countries can be realised. This paper explores the achievements of the Small and Medium Scale Enterprise (SME) sector in Ghana and Malawi and the role government, internal and external support institutions have played in promoting the sector. The findings will assist policy makers, development agencies and business organisations to ascertain the appropriate strategy to improve the SME sector.
