Digitalization and the rise of the platform economy are rapidly changing the way in which SMEs do business. A strong business ecosystem is necessary to manage this change.

 

We invite you to our seminar discussion on the 2018 edition of the International Trade Centre’s (ITC) SME Competitiveness Outlook that tells how to build strong business ecosystems in a digital age. The publication and the seminar addresses questions such as:

 

  • How can big data be tailored to the needs of small enterprises?

  • Which skills do SMEs need to cope with technological change?

  • How to instill trust in the digital economy thus helping SMEs to embrace change?

 

The ITC SME Competitiveness Outlook will be presented by Marion Jansen, Chief Economist of the ITC and responsible of the Outlook. The presentation is followed by a panel discussion with Werner Stengg (European Commission) and Véronique Willems (TBC) (UEAPME).
