As part of the bank’s efforts to help SMEs revive their businesses that have been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, AmBank has launched a timely programme for Small and Medium Enterprise (SMEs) to maximise the help they are able to receive.
AmBank in a statement today said, this year’s AmBank’s BizConference series will provide SMEs with the opportunity to receive guidance on obtaining various grant and tax incentives offered by the government in the areas of Industry 4.0, digitalisation and the halal sector.
“In keeping with social distancing requirements, AmBank’s BizConference series is going digital with a total of nine fully online and free sessions featuring panellists comprising prominent business leaders, SME owners as well as subject matter experts.
“These sessions will involve the sharing of knowledge and advice to SMEs in relation to these key areas. The experts will also guide SMEs on how to leverage on various opportunities to revive their businesses and stay relevant given the present circumstances,” it said.
In conjunction with the BizCONFERENCE series, the bank will also be launching AmBank BizRace Season Three. This business competition will provide knowledge, publicity exposure and networking opportunities for SMEs in three focus areas; Industrial Revolution 4.0, digitalisation and the halal sector.
Registration for this year’s business competition will be open from 17 July 2020 until 2 September 2020 and will comprise three tracks, with 100 businesses chosen per track.
