SERD Policy Talk (SPOT): Building Dynamic SMEs
Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) have generally lagged behind, being less productive and profitable than bigger companies. Now, SMEs face the added challenge of the COVID-19 pandemic and technology disruptions. But the crisis may offer an opportunity for SMEs to enter new areas and disrupt existing business models. For example, there are lot of potential in remote working, fintech, education and health. SMEs may be better at spotting these opportunities and taking advantage of them.
SERD Policy Talk (SPOT) Series, organized by ADB's Southeast Asia Department, features conversations on new ideas and development beyond office walls. SPOT aims to inspire people to explore issues outside their normal area of work.
