Abstract: This paper aims to examine the contribution of small and medium-sized enterprises to the income growth of the whole economy as well as of different groups of income. How other social indicators such as poverty gap index and Gini index are influenced by this group of enterprises will be studied to clarify how inclusive the growth process in Vietnam in recent years has been. Moreover, technological advances of small and medium-sized enterprises will also be measured and analyzed in relation to their employment growth to help us better understand the contribution of innovation to the development of the economy.

Key words: inclusive growth; small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs); technological advances
