#CPAAustralia has released their annual survey “CPA Australia Asia-Pacific Small Business Survey 2020-2021”. It covers 11 economies in the APAC including Hong Kong.
Thanks for Janssen Chan FCPA (Aust.) & my #CUHKMBA student Carmen Pan to invite Ryan Fung from #PAOB & I to join a forum to discuss about technology adoption & applications in HK based on the survey. Close to 500 participants joined the online forum.
Hong Kong SMEs are behind some Asia’s economy in terms of #eCommerce, #SocialMedia and #Innovation. However, those in HK who used #technology in their business & operation have seen significant growth even under the #Covid19.
Apart on leveraging government funding & support on #SME #Digitalization, SME management should not be afraid of technology & think it is a big investment. In today’s digital world, tools are easier to use & learn and it is affordable. More importantly, it is a mindset change & how we adopt changes.
Technology is a new way to solve customer pain points. Knowing & keeping update on what’s available opening up different ways to solve these problems. Good use of technologies can in fact empower SMEs to beat the big guys with rich supply of traditional asset as proven by the #unicorn.
