SME Week 2015 Launched – All SMEs and self-employed invited to GRTU’s key conference on 13th October

Economy Minister Hon Chris Cardona launched the Malta SME Week 2015 programme. SME Week is celebrated across the EU and this is of particular relevance to Malta where SMEs, micro-businesses and the self-employed dominantly make up our economy. Minister Cardona explained that this year’s theme is Digitising the Economy.

This topic is relevant to all sectors of business irrespective of their size, type and nature of business. Digital developments, new methods of communication, eCommerce and online shopping, are all phenomena which are taking place around us. Customers are online and therefore businesses have to seek methods on how to be present as well as otherwise potential is being missed to other sources such as competition from foreign businesses.

GRTU has taken up the initiative to organise a key event during this year’s SME Week – Malta’s Digital Economy Gap Analysis: Identify Your Business’ Next Step. Together with the support of MITA, MCA and Malta Enterprise, through this conference GRTU shall be giving an opportunity to participants to receive hands-on practical trainingon key issues related to the subject as well as to give feedback to the key policymakers. The Minister for the Economy, Investment and Small Businesses Hon Chris Cardona and Parliamentary Secretary for Competitiveness and Economic Growth Hon Jose Herrera, shall be present to receive feedback from the conference.

Amongst other topics, the conference shall seek to equip businesses with insights into how they can maximise their profits through eCommerce, what grants they may be missing out on, how effective and cost-efficient digital marketing can be for all businesses, and how simple methods of improving operations through digital means can benefit business’ competitiveness.

This half-dayconference shall be held on 13thOctober and shall be followed by a free networking lunch. All SMEs, micro-businesses and self-employed are encouraged to attend. More details shall follow. For registrationand more information about SME Week 2015, kindly contact GRTU on .
