This paper examines the position and importance of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in foreign trade of Slovakia in the period of ongoing geopolitical changes that actively shape global integration processes in the world economy. At present, SMEs in Slovakia are of great importance for the development of the economy and foreign trade, especially in the area of supporting their internationalization. The research will evaluate the impact of SMEs on the development of Slovakia’s foreign trade and their institutional support for export. At the same time, it will point out the problems of SMEs in Slovakia related to internationalization and provide further possibilities to support their exports to foreign markets.
