The ministers issued the Nanjing Declaration on SME Innovative Development during the 21st APEC SME Ministerial Meeting, which focused on strengthening the innovation capacity and sustainability of SMEs while eliminating barriers to their participation in cross-border trade. As economies intend to grow their CBE share, working together in a disruptive collaborative model and ‘educate’ the market is one of the best approaches. The conference organizer offers a platform where participants from APEC member economies and other parts of the world can share research and best practices to assist manufacturers and merchants in boosting import and export trade. The conference also concentrates on promoting the application of modern information technology within SMEs and improving the informational application on R&D, production and distribution, and business administration.
In order to facilitate the SMEs’ cross-border trade participation, China will build a high quality service platform sponsored by famous research institutes, funds, investment companies and information service providers. The platform will work on optimizing the utilization of Internet in SMEs. The comprehensive application of Internet will help SMEs improve their business competitiveness and upgrade operation models.Theme:
