Singapore Indian Chamber of Commerce & Industry held an engaging dialogue session with its members on 30 January 2015. The session was graced by Manpower Minister, Mr Tan Chuan-Jin. Members took this occasion to voice their concerns over the continued labour constraints faced by SMEs. This topic stirred lively exchange of suggestions and views in overcoming the manpower challenge and ways to remain economically competitive in the immediate decades ahead.
Ms. Helen Campos, Chairperson of SME Centre@SICCI, also gave a short overview on the various funding schemes provided by the Government for SMEs. In today’s increasingly competitive business environment, SMEs are on the peril of losing out to competition. In order to beat to odds and push their businesses to the next level of success, she encouraged start-up enterprises as well as established SMEs to approach the SME Centre to enhance their capabilities and boost productivity. Business advisory services such as focused consultancy, business matching, market research, networking opportunities, regionalisation advisory, business promotion and business support information are available at no charge.
“SMEs that are keen to understand their current internal capabilities and challenges, to engage appropriate government assistance and identify areas for improvement and growth can approach SME Centre@SICCI for a complimentary Business Diagnostic Assessment.”, said Ms. Helen.
