Abstract: In the last three decades of the 20th century, the economic policies of the developed countries were built on small and medium enterprises. The governments of these countries encouraged the creation of an entrepreneurial culture by providing all the necessary facilities and subsidies. In this logic, the Algerian Government has launched some initiatives encouraging SMEs, with the aim of gradually getting out from the windfall economy and diversifying exports. We built our study on surveys with Algerian exporting enterprises or potentially exporting. The analysis of data collected showed that the effort deployed by the Algerian Government has led to an important increase of SMEs creation. Results showed that the majority of these new companies are non-exporting. However, the reaching of the objective of a diversified economy is far from being achieved. The contribution of these SMEs in exports remains too far from the objectives targeted by the Algerian Government.
