LAHORE: The Small and Medium Enterprises Development Authority (SMEDA) has increased its Research and Development (R&D) activities aimed at planning the development of Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) in the country at par with global best practices.
For this purpose a “Knowledge Sharing Programme” has been initiated within the organisation, under which SMEDA SME experts have been assigned to study latest international research reports and share them with other team members in the form of presentations during weekly knowledge sharing sessions to be held at the SMEDA head office.
SMEDA’s Policy & Planning Division has been assigned the responsibility of coordinating the activity on a regular basis. SMEDA team members working in regional and provincial offices will be able to attend knowledge sharing sessions via Zoom.
According to the press release issued by SMEDA, being an apex body of Pakistan for SME development in the country, SMEDA needs to keep itself abreast with the latest research and development taking place in the world on SME development.
“The main objective of the knowledge sharing activity is to inculcate a habit of reading books, research and new information among SMEDA team members to support internal capacity for providing better service to the country’s SME sector,” said a spokesperson of SMEDA.
