In line with 2020 APEC theme “Optimising Human Potential towards a Future of Shared Prosperity”, and the 2019 APEC SME Ministerial Statement, inclusive growth and innovation-driven business environment are emphasized continuously by member economies.
We believe to strengthen networking of the “cross-sector”, and pave to the development model which promotes innovation and inclusive growth with focuses on factors of experience-driven and co-creation, can assist member economies to effectively respond to the aforementioned issues.
The main outputs of this project are: (1) a 2-day event with 300 participants to be hosted during August 2020, Taipei. It aims to provide platforms for SMEs to exchange experiences and knowledge regarding the “cross-sector” innovation ecosystem; (2) a publication (Monitor) to collect information on trends of SMEs development which focuses on cross-sector cooperation and/or innovation. The core beneficiaries are to be delegates from industry, government, research institutions, and civil society of the member economies.
