Micro, small and medium businesses need to pivot toward the digital world to survive the COVID-19 pandemic according to the T&T Chamber of Industry and Commerce.
In this regard, the organization is seeking to offer valuable information to MSMEs at an upcoming free webinar which will include the Trini-born President of Howard University, Wayne Frederick.
103.1FM News spoke with Chairman of the Chamber’s NOVA Committee, Allison Demas, who says these businesses make up the majority in T&T.
She says the webinar will help business owners chart the way forward to digitally enabled transformation.
Ms Demas also believes the State needs to follow through on its plans for MSMEs, given their importance to the national economy.
Reminding that the webinar is free, Ms Demas says interested persons can register on their website, chamber.org.tt.
Other speakers will include:
• Vashtie Dookiesingh – Senior Specialist, IDB Lab
• Francis Lewis – Senior Management Consultant
• Michael Akindele – Washington-based Digital Transformation Lead
The webinar will be moderated by Chamber CEO Gabriel Faria.
