Many studies have shown that knowledge and skills plays a vital role for small business development. Furthermore, the government support in term of 'Training and Technical Assistance Program' when dealing with small business can be considered very important for business growth and development. In many countries, the essential and greater important contribution of SMEs for economic development is widely recognized.

The purpose of this study therefore to contribute an understanding the importance of training and technical assistance for SMEs development in the state of Kedah, Malaysia.
