Since more than 20 years of reform and opening up, the SMB in our country also has obtained the rapid development. At present it has been playing an important role in China’s economic and is occupying the noticeable status. According to statistics, by the end of 2001, China had 29.3 million SMB, which employ 174 million people and have capital of 6.66 trillion Yuan. From the quantity, the number of the SMB accounts for 99.9% of complete enterprises in our country; from contribution, the final product and the service value created by the SMB account for 50.5% of China’s GDP, the employment solved by the SMB accounts for more than 75% of China’s urban employment, the product, the technology and the service exportation of them account for approximately 60% of China’s total exports, the tax revenue they completed accounts for 43.2% of China’s total tax revenue income.
