8th SME Biz Innovation Summit

SMEs are the future drivers of Singapore economic growth that currently employ two-thirds of total workforce and account for half of Singapore’s GDP. Although Singapore and Malaysia are facing the biggest GDP hit in the economic growth across SEA due to trade war and slowdown of Chinese demand, a recent study shows SME's entry into digital economy could potentially boost ASEAN GDP collectively by up to US$1 trillion. 
 
As the Singapore government is pumping up to S$150 million to boost the AI Capabilities, international experts predict that the big data and advance analytics within SME ecosystem will be the next level of transformation focus for the SME Go Digital Program.
 
While hiring & retaining talent, managing rising cost in rental & man power remained as top challenges for SMEs to transform and scale up businesses. Could SMEs use internationalization and digitalization as strategies to leverage increasing cost?  
 
The SME Biz-Innovation Summit 2019 tailored to bring the stakeholders to discuss latest BIZ-Innovation trends and brainstorm collaboration strategies to transform uncertainties into new opportunities
