Project Summary

In response to APEC Leaders’ instruction in 2015 and 2016 APEC theme regarding the “Quality Growth” and “Modernization of MSMEs”, the promotion of competitive and resilient SMEs in digital economy is a direct way to actualize the aforementioned priorities. Therefore, this project aims to enhance SMEs’ Digital Competitiveness and Resilience and facilitate their integration into to global supply and value chains which is an important issue of Next Generation Trade and Investment towards SME modernization and Quality Growth.

This capacity building project will establish an APEC SME O2O Expert Network and collect over 20 best practices to publish a comprehensive APEC SME Digital Competitiveness and Resilience Guidebook. In addition, in line with Leaders’ continuous call for cross-fora and PPP collaboration, EPWG, HRDWG, PPWE, ABAC, AHSGIE, top O2O commerce platforms, leading MNCs (e.g. Intel, Siemens, PwC, McKinsey and Trend Micro) and International Organizations (e.g. ICC, ADPC, ADRC) will be engaged in this project. We will also gather over 400 stakeholders through hosting 1 Summit and 2 Capacity Building Fora in Chinese Taipei, Malaysia and on the margins of 2017 SMEMM.

All in all, this project is the 2nd phase of O2O Initiative and the next step of BCP promotion to provide a cross-border platform for SMEs, tech start-ups and young entrepreneurs training, networking and showcasing opportunities so as to assist them seizing the opportunity (O2O new business model) and well preparing for the challenges (cyber threats) in digital economy, therefore, to build up a more competitive and resilient APEC community and towards Quality Growth.

Relevance

Building upon the momentum of APEC Accelerator Network (AAN) and BCP initiatives, this project aims to benefit SMEs in APEC economies through enhancing their Digital Competitiveness and Resilience which is also stressed in the ABAC-USC Marshall School’s joint study in 2015. Today, digital economy, especially O2O model, offers enormous possibilities with huge market potential in APEC region. However, the increasing number of cyber-threats has been a growing concern. According to PwC’s 2016 Global CEO Survey, 61% of CEOs consider cyber security as a threat to both domestic and commercial interests. For SMEs, 60% of them experienced a cyber-breach and the average cost for each worst case was from 100 to 180 thousand US Dollars (PwC, 2014). 

SMEs are important partners for large enterprises in global supply and value chains. But, lacking the awareness and capability of digital security make SMEs the “sweet-spot” for cyber attackers and further cause the disruption of global supply and value chains. Thus, without enhancing SMEs’ Digital Competitiveness and Resilience, cyber threats will challenge trust and confidence between SMEs and customers and reduce the value created by 3 trillion US Dollars in 2020 (McKinsey, 2015). 

The Iloilo Initiative also mentioned that MSMEs are faced with challenges related to innovation on many fronts, but the MSMEs are also faced with challenges related to innovation on many fronts, but the most crucial of which are the lack of ability to develop globally competitive, market driven products and solutions and their inability to fully leverage on the benefits provided by the digital and internet economy. 

As a result, this project, as the next step of O2O and AAN Initiative and BCP promotion, will equip SMEs’ Digital Competiveness and Resilience and further integrate them into global supply and value chains as an important issue of Next Generation Trade and Investment towards SME modernization and Quality Growth. 

The project is fully under the following Rank1 criteria:

1) Information technology and digital economy, including ecommerce, ICT infrastructure and digital tradeThe project will secure and accelerate SMEs’ growth through enhancing their digital competitiveness and resilience to further promote the employment of O2O business in the APEC region.

2) MSME Modernization and insertion in GVCs, and implementation of the Boracay Action Agenda to Globalize MSMEs and the Iloilo InitiativeThis project promotes SME Digital Competitiveness and Resilience as the next step of BCP promotion and O2O business model, which are highlighted in the “Boracay Action Agenda to Globalize MSMEs”. The conduct of this capacity building project and the development of the APEC SME Digital Competitiveness and Resilience Guidebook align well with the Iloilo Initiative, which highlights the need for the sharing and development of guidebooks/toolkits and capacity building programs implemented by APEC, individual or group of economies or the private sector.

3) Emergency preparedness and disaster management, including activities relating to the efficient movement of capital, goods, services and people as well as the implementation of the APEC Disaster Risk Reduction FrameworkThis project echoes the APEC Disaster Risk Reduction Framework which stresses the advancement of ICT for comprehensive disaster management system to BCP promotion.

4) Building sustainable and resilient communitiesAs the 2nd phase of O2O Initiative and the next step of BCP promotion, this Capacity Building project aims to further facilitate SMEs’ access to global value chains, which are an important step towards SME modernization and a more sustainable and resilient APEC communities.

5) Ease of Doing BusinessWith increasing numbers of SME access to the digital economy, enhancing Digital Competitiveness and Resilience will allow them doing cross-border business in a cost-effective and innovative way, making Asia-Pacific an Inclusive and innovative region.

Objectives

1) To raise the SMEs’ awareness and increase their know-how on enhancing of Digital Competitiveness and Resilience;

2) To publish the APEC Digital Competitiveness and Resilience Guidebook for SMEs’ reference in doing O2O business and for the widespread capacity building training and knowledge dissemination in the future; and

3) To develop policy recommendations of promoting Digital Competitiveness and Resilience for member economies to facilitate SMEs’ access to international market and global value chains in the digital economy.

Alignment

The project is in line with the 2016 APEC theme of “Quality Growth and Human Development” with its sub-theme, “Towards the Modernization of MSMEs in the Asia-Pacific” and echoes 2015 APEC Leaders and Ministers’ call on the importance of promoting SMEs’ resilience and O2O new business models. This project also echoes “Digital Economy Action Plan” and “Boracay Action Agenda to Globalize MSMEs”, which recommend institutional support for promoting SME O2O business and BCP so as to move toward a more sustainable and resilient APEC communities. Moreover, this capacity building project also responds to 2015 SCE’s “Policy on APEC´s Capacity Building (ECOTECH)”  

In addition, this project aligns with all the priorities and objectives set by the SMEWG Strategic Plan 2013-2016. For “Business Environment, Market Access and Internationalization”, the mentoring, networking and showing opportunities will be provided to assist SMEs seizing the opportunity (O2O business) and well preparing for the challenges (cyber-threats) in digital economy so as to facilitate their participation in international market and global value chains. For “Building Management Capability, Entrepreneurship and Innovation”, we will provide APEC SME Digital Competitiveness and Resilience Guidebook for SMEs’ reference in doing O2O business. For the priority area of “Financing”, this project will also improve SMEs’ Financial Literacy in terms of assisting them to get the O2O related know-how such as fin-tech and to well prepare any possible related cyber-threats. The project is also in line with 2016 SMEWG Work Plan to support innovative SMEs and start-ups to access regional and global market through O2O and foster resilient SMEs withstanding disasters such as cyber-attacks.

TILF/ASF Justification

As stated in the project summary, this capacity building project will establish an APEC SME O2O Expert Network, publish the APEC Digital Competitiveness and Resilience Guidebook, and host Capacity Building Summit and Fora through strong APEC cross-fora collaboration and PPP to support the capacity building needs of APEC developing economies.

There will be several approaches to engage APEC developing economies in the aforementioned work:

1)  APEC SME O2O Expert Network: The APEC developing economies will be consulted to recommend experts that familiar with their domestic SME issues and development (especially in digital innovation) to join the network. With this arrangement, it can be assured that the standpoints of APEC developing economies can be well incorporated.

2) APEC SME Digital Competitiveness and Resilience Guidebook: The guidebook will be published by collecting over 20 best practices of SME Digital Competitiveness and Resilience. For the best practices to be collected, we will consult the Expert Network first to make sure that the cases can be well applied for the SMEs or start-ups of APEC developing economies.

3)  APEC SME O2O Capacity Building Summit and Fora: 3 events will be hosted (including 1 summit and 2 fora) to provide holistic training on enhancing SME Competitiveness and Resilience, covering issues such as O2O innovation areas (i.e., m-commerce, sharing economy, collaborative industry and next generation innovation), e-payment, clearance, warehousing,  transportation capabilities and etc. For each event, APEC developing economies can recommend a potential SME or start-up to be funded by this project to attend the events. 

4) APEC Cross-Fora collaboration and Public-Private-Partnership: This project will incorporate components from ABAC’s CBET project, which has been endorsed to provide education and capacity building programs in cross-border e-commerce, especially for developing economies. So far, many developing economies (e.g., China; Chile; Indonesia; the Philippines; and Papua New Guinea) have benefited from the project. We will collaborate with ABAC to host the APEC SME O2O Capacity Forum I in Malaysia during the first half of 2017.

Besides, based on the strong bond public-private partnership built from AAN and BCP Initiative, the MNCs and related international organizations (e.g. Intel, Siemens, Acer, Trend Micro, Belfor, ADRC, ADPC and etc.) will keep working hand-in-hand with us to provide SMEs from developing economies the opportunities of technology cooperation to facilitate SMEs’ participation into the global supply and value chains.

Beneficiaries and Outputs

Outputs: The outputs are elaborated in the following 4 aspects:

1) APEC SME O2O Expert Network: The network will comprise of the experts specialized in enhancing SME digital competitiveness and resilience. The experts will be recommended by APEC economies, and project partners such as Intel, Siemens, Acer, Trend Micro, Belfor, ADRC, ADPC and etc. to essentially contribute their expertise for the APEC SME Digital Resilience Guidebook. In addition, this advisory board will also recommend speakers, outstanding SMEs/Start-ups to engage in this project through their social network.

2) APEC SME Digital Competitiveness and Resilience Guidebook and project report: Based on the first year’s (2016) O2O Guidebook which has incorporated best practices and guidelines of doing O2O business, the APEC SME Digital Competitiveness and Resilience Guidebook will be a more inclusive material that also includes the SMEs’ best practice in enhancing digital resilience. This guidebook will also be used as the key teaching material for the O2O capacity building training fora and courses for SMEs in the future. Besides, the project report that includes all the outputs of the all events and related documents as well as a video with interview to main participants will be issued.

3) APEC SME O2O Capacity Building Summit and Fora: 1 summit and 2 fora with expected 400+ participants will be carried out. For the APEC SME Digital Competitiveness and Resilience Forum I & II, they will gather 100+ stakeholders respectively. The Forum I in collaboration with Malaysia and ABAC will be held in Kuala Lumpur in the half of 2017. As for the Forum II, cohosted with Viet Nam, it will be conducted during the 24th APEC SMEMM. The APEC SME Digital Competitiveness and Resilience Summit, a two-day event with over 200+ participants in collaboration with private sector (e.g. Intel, Siemens, Trend Micro, Acer, Belfor, Mckinsey and etc) will be held in Taipei in July of 2017. For the aforementioned 3 serial events, they will provide APEC SMEs the training, networking and showcasing opportunities to enhance their Digital Competitiveness and Resilience.

4) APEC Cross-Fora Collaboration and Public-Private-Partnership: This project will essentially collaborate with EPWG, HRDWG, PPWE, ABAC, and AHSGIE. We will engage them in joining the expert network as well as co-hosting or attending the serial events to further the project impact. Besides, the leading MNCs (e.g. Intel, Siemens, Trend Micro, and Belfor) and International Organizations (e.g. International Chamber Commerce (ICC), ADPC and ADRC) will be engaged to provide or sponsor the training programs and networking opportunities, and showcasing platforms to participated SMEs.

Outcomes: 

For the private sector, in the medium-term, awareness of enhancing SME digital competiveness and resilience will be further strengthened so as to make more SMEs successfully engage in O2O business, which is a faster, cheaper and easier way to facilitate SMEs’ participation in global value and supply chains as well as high growth in the digital economy. In addition, with a strong bond of PPP from MNCs, related international organizations and academia’s knowledge support (e.g., USC-Marshall School of Business, the intensive research of cross-border e-commerce in APEC & Mckinsey’s digital resilience research) as mentioned in item 5, these stakeholders can also well connect with the outstanding APEC SMEs to explore more business cooperation opportunities, which is a good way to make the digital innovation and start-up eco-system stronger and grow faster in the long run. 

For the public sector, limited public sector’s capacities can be supplemented by the PPP in terms of implanting innovation power from private sector to improve public service and operational efficiency, so as to better meet the growing demand for nurture SMEs’ digital competiveness and resilience. Besides, this project will enable policy makers of APEC economies to have a better understanding of how to support SMEs integrating into global value chains steadily through O2O promotion and digital resilience planning. They can design their own long-term policies and strategies through referring to the recommendations from this project and APEC SME Digital Competitiveness and Resilience Guidebook, to assist SMEs stand firmly in this digital world as well as integrating them into global value chain in the long run. 

Beneficiaries:

1) SMEs and Start-ups will be the main beneficiaries. This project will provide SMEs guidance to seize opportunities (O2O new business model) and be well prepared for the challenges (cyber threats) in digital economy so as to facilitate their participation in international markets and global value chains.

2) Women entrepreneurs: O2O commerce can provide them with increased business opportunities beyond the traditional workplace environments. Through engaging in this digital competiveness and resilience project, women will be given more exposure and knowledge in being well prepared for doing O2O business when attending the project events as representatives of their SMEs and organizations. As individual participants or indirect beneficiaries, they can use the “Digital Competitiveness and Resilience Guidebook” as a reference tool for themselves.

3) O2O commerce platforms and related MNCs and organizations, such as Intel, Siemens, Trend Micro, Belfor, Acer, PwC, McKinsey, USC Marshall School, ADPC, ADRC, ICC, may benefit from attracting more SMEs utilizing O2O and provide (or in return to apply) digital resilience solutions.

4) APEC Policy makers will benefit from the recommendations to enhance SMEs’ Digital Competitiveness and Resilience and move toward a Quality Growth in the digital economy.

Since this is a capacity building project, we aim to benefit SMEs as widely as possible and do not target a specific group of certain level of experience. The capacity building fora and the “Digital Competitiveness and Resilience Guidebook” are expected to be useful for O2O SMEs of different levels/stages of development.

Dissemination

As stated in item 5, this project will collect more 20 best practices of SME Digital Competitiveness and Resilience to supplement the 2016’s SME O2O Guidebook as a more inclusive one, “APEC SME Digital Competitiveness and Resilience Guidebook” for SMEs’ reference in doing O2O business and for the widespread capacity building training and knowledge dissemination in the future. The Guidebook (hard and soft copies) and the project report that includes all the outputs of the all events and related documents would be distributed in SMEWG and other related APEC fora meetings, through (1) private sector partners and project advisory board’s network as well as (2) the APEC SCMC website and Facebook fan page (APEC SME Monitor, https://www.facebook.com/APECSMEMonitor/) maintained by project team, for easier and cheaper access. (3) This will also be made available at the APEC MSME Marketplace being developed by the SMEWG. 

The target audience of the project includes stakeholders from AAN, BCP network and SMEs interested in doing and securing their business through digital mechanism. The outputs of this project will also be presented during regular APEC meetings (e.g., SOM, CTI, SMEWG, EPWG, ABAC and etc.) and will be disseminated by the private sector partners’ (e.g., Intel, Siemens, Acer, Trend Micro, Belfor and so forth) network. 

Gender

It is agreed that the gender balance in implementing projects can facilitate in-depth discussions and innovative thinking. To ensure the participation of both men and women, 400 to be gathered participants will have at least 40% the female participation rate, which is far beyond most of APEC projects which are usually under 30%. 

This project is also beneficial to women. The O2O commerce can provide women with increased business opportunities beyond the traditional workplace environments. Through engaging in this digital competiveness and resilience project, women will be well prepared for doing O2O business and accessing digital economy.

Project assessment & Dissemination

Risks

1) Low interests in joining Capacity Building Summit and Fora: There may be a risk of low stakeholders’ participation in the Summit and Fora. If the gathering process is not as expected, in response, we will use social media to attract more participants. For example, through channels such as APEC SMEWG, project’s official website, Facebook fan page and stakeholders’ social network. The participation of the forums is critical for this project. For this, the project team will contact with the stakeholders in the early stage of the project implementation through the previous well-built connections such as AAN and BCP network to confirm and secure the target stakeholders’ engagement in this project.

2) Difficulties in collecting best practices of SME digital resilience: Since that digital resilience is a newly emerging concept to SMEs, there would be less good cases comparing with O2O best practices could be collected. For this, we will consult with the APEC expert network, especially with Mckinsey’s digital resilience research team, PwC, Belfor, Trend Micro and other related institutions to ensure that the best practices can be well identified. 

Monitoring and Evaluation

The measureable indicators include 1 Summit and 2 Fora, gathering over 400 stakeholders with at least 40% of female participation. For the Forum in Malaysia and Viet Nam, project overseer team will coordinate with the focal points to set the agenda and arrangements for hosting and participants recruiting. As for the Summit in Taipei, project team will mainly take the lead for the hosting arrangement. In addition, over 20 best practices of SME Digital Competitiveness and Resilience will be included in the Guidebook as the other indicator. Those numerical indicators above will be easily accessed through the implementation. 

This project also aims to form the APEC SME O2O Expert Network. Furthermore, evaluations (surveys) will be conducted to better understand the current status of SME Digital Competitiveness and Resilience. Lastly, the number of access to the APEC SME Digital Competitiveness and Resilience on APEC website will be another indicator for evaluation. It is expected that the Guidebook will be accessed at least 1,000 times within a year after the publication.

Linkages

1) Cross-Fora Linkages: EPWG, HRDWG (APEC Skills Development Capacity Building Alliance), PPWE, ABAC and AHSGIE will be engaged through their attendance at the APEC SME O2O Expert Network, three events, co-work on APEC SME Digital Competitiveness and Resilience Guidebook, project result sharing and best practices exchanging. Outcomes of this project will also be disseminated to APEC institutes, including APEC SCMC and AAN. This project will also cooperate with AHSGIE, which coordinates cross-cutting APEC initiatives that promote economic growth through the Internet and Digital Economy by prioritizing on enhancing the Digital Economy and the Internet Economy.

2)  PPP Linkages: ABAC and non-APEC stakeholders such as Intel, Siemens, Trend Micro, Belfor, Acer, PwC, McKinsey, USC Marshall School, ADPC, ADRC, ICC, O2O commerce platforms and SMEs/start-ups interested in O2O will also engage in the project by providing contributions and receiving digital competitiveness and resilience building support. Besides, ABAC’s research (in collaboration with USC Marshall School) “Driving Economic Growth through Cross-Border E-Commerce in APEC: Empowering MSMEs and Eliminating Barriers” also highly corresponds with this project.

Previous work: This project is based on the momentum of our previous work - AAN initiative and BCP promotion.

Through AAN initiative, we found that digital economy and trade bring huge business opportunities and benefits for SMEs and APEC startup ecosystem is taking shape. Evidently, the early-stage investment ecosystem in Asia has been improved (e.g. VC investment increased from 6 billion to 40 billion and 55% were early-stage investments according to CB Insight 2016.) Secondly, O2O model is providing huge business opportunities for SMEs, for instance, 80% of VC investment deal flow in Asia was to Internet and Mobile companies and over 90% of the finalists of APEC Challenge are also O2O start-ups and gained high-growth.

Regarding BCP promotion, we realize that as stated in item 1, lacking the awareness and capability of digital security make SMEs the “sweet-spot” for cyber attackers and further cause the disruption of global supply and value chains. Therefore, enhancing digital resilience for SMEs should be one of the key roadmaps of BCP in the future.

Learning from the aforementioned previous experience, that is why, we conclude that to 1) optimize the conducive digital innovation environment, 2) enhance digital competitiveness and resilience, as well as 3) capitalize on O2O opportunities for innovative start-ups and SMEs is the next step to further facilitate SME’s growth and access to regional and global market. 

APEC’s comparative advantage: In the e-commerce and entrepreneurship development territory, APEC has long been a pioneer of leading the world towards a more innovative and advanced business environment. Moreover, APEC has been continuously served as the role of resources provider, policy recommender, and regional collaboration promoter in this territory. Hence, for the emerging issues like Digital Competitiveness and Resilience, APEC is the best source to carry out this project since public and private partnership is its highly esteemed value and regional collaboration is APEC’s core competence.

Sustainability

This project will enhance SMEs’ Digital Competitiveness and Resilience to facilitate their access to global supply and value chains, creating more opportunities for them in the future. The “APEC SME Digital Competitiveness and Resilience Guidebook” will be provided to SMEs as a reference in doing O2O business and for the widespread capacity building training and knowledge dissemination in the future. 

As for the next step of the project, the O2O initiative comprises a 4-year Framework. For the first two years, 2016-2017, the focus is on collecting knowledge and best practices to develop the comprehensive “APEC SME Digital Competitiveness and Resilience Guidebook” to enhance SMEs digital competitiveness and resilience; In the third year, we will design proper capacity building training programs for SMEs; and the fourth year, there will be the conclusion and dissemination. Therefore, as a SME capacity building initiative and learning from previous AAN and BCP promotion, our next step is to largely provide training (Train-the-Trainer) programs with the reference of “APEC SME Digital Competitiveness and Resilience Guidebook” along with networking and showcasing platforms for APEC SMEs and start-ups, so as to essentially facilitate their integration into to global supply and value chains. 

For the measurement of progress on the outcomes and impacts, we will conduct the follow-up survey or interviews to monitor the private sector stakeholders’ business development. For the public sector, to see the policy change within the APEC region, we will share the experiences with and conduct a brief survey to know the policy change of all member economies on the issues of O2O business and the enhancement of SME digital competitiveness and resilience.
