SME World Forum 2019
December 11, 2019 - December 14, 2019
China is bold, ambitious, and have the resources. The “Greater Bay Area” (GBA) is a Chinese government’s initiative to link the cities of Hong Kong, Macau, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Zhuhai, Foshan, Zhongshan, Dongguan, Huizhou, Jiangmen and Zhaoqing into an integrated economic and business hub.
We need Big Ideas to change the world and at the forefront on this transformation are small and medium enterprises (SMEs) who are ready to engage all sectors of the society (industry, academia, entertainment, etc.) to enable the GBA to take its place as a major economic hub.
The SME World Forum focuses on Macau and with the theme of 2019, SMEs and Entrepreneurship – Leading the Way Forward. It is the premier event that brings all of these components together.
This is the time to be in Macau. The expanded focus on creativity and innovation led by SMEs is the pathway needed for the GBA region to take its place a major economic center. The strong links with major urban centers in the GBA region provides talent, innovation, and problem solving for critical industry in fashion, environmental management, information and communication technologies, and tourism.
The International Council for Small Business (ICSB), The Macau Small and Medium Enterprise Association (SMEA), The Asia Council for Small Business (ACSB), and our global partners, including the US Small Business Administration (SBA) invited you to Macau to participate in discussion on the way forward. In attendance will be government leaders, academic leaders, entrepreneurs, small business owners, and non-governmental organizations who will share their vision on how to support SMEs in their lead to make the GBA vision of prosperity and economic vitality a sustainable reality.
