As part of a wider research program, we analysed the theoretical framework and the recent developments of the process of internationalization (transnationalisation) of the small- and medium-sized enterprises in Spain. The paper highlights the main trends and barriers of this internationalization process. Methodology included document analyses, interviews, and the analyses of statistical databases.
