Abstract: In the era of globalization, Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) play an important role in advancing Indonesia's economy. This article aims at constructing a conceptual framework for modelling the relationships between entrepreneurial orientation, barriers, business network, and international readiness of the SMEs. This paper is expected to contribute both to theoretical and practical aspects. The proposed conceptual framework for the international readiness of the SMEs covers both quantitative and qualitative aspects of the interactions between entrepreneurial orientation, barriers, business networks, and international readiness of the SMEs in the Indonesian context. As for the practical aspect, this study provides recommendations for government to design proper policy to further promote and enhance the competitiveness of the Indonesian SMEs in the international trading arena.
