CALL FOR PAPERS
The International Conference on African Entrepreneurship and Small Business Development (ICAESB) is an annual event of the University of Dar es Salaam Business School (UDBS). The conference provides a unique international forum and an opportunity for researchers, policy makers and business managers to exchange views, share experiences, and disseminate research findings and practical lessons in the areas of small and medium size enterprises (SMEs) and entrepreneurship development. The 17th ICAESB will be held from 10th to 11th, August 2017 at the University of Dar es Salaam Business School, Tanzania.

THEME	
Diversification into both local and export markets with greater value added than traditional agricultural products remains a major objective for many low-income developing countries (Brenton and Hoppe, 2007). Value added products trigger the development of a wider spectrum of production links with many sectors, more elastic demand, less volatile prices, transfer of more production skills and better-paying jobs vital for modern economy. Academics and policy makers agree that SMEs, both young and old and the new businesses they establish play a critical role in realizing that effect (GEM, 2012). Thus, the growth of SMEs both in quality and quantity is in this regard inevitable. However, given the fast changing business environments and the corresponding stiff competition around the world, SMEs, particularly those in developing and least developed countries need to have appropriate strategies and tactics to enable them survive, grow and ultimately concur both domestic and global markets. The latter prompted the University of Dar es Salaam Business School to come up with the theme “Fostering Inclusive and Sustainable Industrialization: Prospects and Challenges” for its 17th ICAESB conference.  In beefing up this main conference theme, the organizers are calling for research papers related to the following sub-themes:
