Abstract: This article highlights the trends and patterns of international cooperation and integration of small and medium-sized businesses by the example of the Stavropol territory (Russia), considers the participation of state bodies in international cooperation and exports. Management of the infrastructure of international cooperation and integration is characterized by low efficiency and is constrained by the lack of scientific and methodological support for these processes. The problem is that the existing needs of small and medium-sized businesses for infrastructure support for international cooperation and integration are unmet, while budget resources are spent on the development of those infrastructure components that are not in demand or can only bring practical benefits in combination with other components. Scientific novelty consists in the development of scientific and methodological recommendations for optimizing the management of international cooperation and integration of small and medium-sized businesses in the Stavropol territory.
