Federation of Indian Micro and Small & Medium Enterprises (FISME) evolved into a large national Federation of geographical and sectoral associations of MSMEs in 1995 following India's embarking upon liberalization in 1991 and India's accession to WTO in 1995. Till then it used to be known as National Alliance of Young Entrepreneurs which was established in 1967. FISME works in three thematic areas: Market access (including domestic public procurement and bilateral/ multilateral trade issues such FTAs and WTO), Advocacy for reforms for ease of doing business for MSMEs and execution of MSME development projects assisted by Gol and multilateral agencies.
