The Georgetown Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GCCI), in collaboration with GTT, will be hosting National Small Business Week on July 29, 2023 at the Arthur Chung Convention Centre. The event is expected to celebrate and elevate micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs).
In a statement to the press, the business advocacy group said the week-long initiative aims to enhance the visibility and success of the vibrant MSME community, and highlight the need for collaborative efforts in Guyana’s growing economy.
Guyana Standard understands that National Small Business Week will showcase a dynamic programme, featuring a captivating video series highlighting the journeys of rising entrepreneurs. In addition, GCCI councillors will embark on regional outreaches, bringing valuable support and guidance directly to local businesses. A highlight of the week will be the highly anticipated ‘Teenternship’ programme, empowering students with hands-on training alongside accomplished business executives.
Furthermore, participating businesses will offer exclusive discounts on their products and services, creating unparalleled opportunities for customers.
Dr. Rosh Khan, Head of the National Small Business Week, emphasized the vital role of small businesses within our communities. He stated, “National Small Business Week, now in its second year, aims to provide our MSME members with invaluable advice and guidance from accomplished business executives. This event is a strategic collaboration for success, as we recognize the tremendous potential of small businesses to drive positive change in the world of business and beyond.”
GCCI said too that it is proud to join forces with various government ministries, corporate sponsors, and business service organizations to ensure the resounding success of this initiative and its continuity as an annual event.
