SMEs to go Virtual

Even before the end of November SPES is reporting on the Workshop/Seminar our Hi-tec Unit organized on the 19th.

The Guest of Honour, H.E. Juan Carlos Rey, EU Ambassador, made an enlightening exposé and pointed out the dynamic role of EU to promote also small enterprises interaction.

The ICT importance of 6 months Virtual Congress for Young Entrepreneurs was demonstrated by establishing, at a click of the computer, internet/spatial connectivity to over 50 top experts on SMEs matters and how virtual Learning/Sharing and e-business can be carried out "on-line". The value of virtual photography use was illustrated too, as small and medium enterprises of ACP countries also need to develop a new mindset in our "spatial" era!


National/Regional/International linkages
