A ‘Business Development Support Training’ class for SME entrepreneurs was jointly opened by Kachin State’s Directorate of Industrial Supervision and Inspection and the Friedrich Naumann Foundation on 2 July at the Community Centre in Myitkyina Town, under the supervision of the Ministry of Industry.
At the opening ceremony, the chairman of Kachin State’s Small and Medium-sized Enterprises Development Agency and the Minister of Transport and Electricity and Industry for the State, U Win Nyunt, explained that the country’s business sector can be improved when its micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) develop because 99 per cent of businesses in Myanmar are MSMEs. Therefore, trainees need to learn and participate in discussions during the training courses, he said.
Then, Daw Hay Man, a representative from FNF, explained the reasons for starting the class and U Soe Hein, the president of the Small and Medium Enterprise Business Institute, spoke about the training class.
The class will cover business management, including market research, financial planning, digital innovation, and project management. Sixty trainees have registered for the class, which will conclude on 7 July. —STATE IPRD
