Powering SMEs Development Programme

Since 2008, Standard Chartered Business Banking has been the sole sponsor of the "Powering SMEs Development Programme" offered by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC). Through a series of training workshops, seminars, exhibitions and other networking events, the programme aims to expand the touch points for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and equip them with the right tools to explore new market opportunities. SMEs get to participate in many of the Standard Chartered events such as market seminars and networking cocktail gatherings to learn more about the latest market trends and information, or reach out to more industry peers and explore more business opportunities.

Some of the previous events include:

  • Networking reception at Hong Kong Fashion Week Spring/Summer
  • Networking reception at Hong Kong Electronics Fair (Spring Edition)
  • Market seminar on Greater China
  • Market seminar on ASEAN and India
  • Seminar on tapping into the Mainland domestic market with branding strategies
  • Market seminar on India & Indonesia
  • Seminar on the silver market
