NCB Welcomes SMEs

2013 is an exciting time for business as investors look beyond the current global economic challenges and prepare for a return to growth. We encourage your continued use of foresight combined with the right skill-sets, innovative products and ideas, as you explore the boundless opportunities.

The National Commercial Bank Jamaica Limited (NCB) wants our Small and Medium Enterprises (SME’s) to be poised to take advantage of these opportunities and we have designed this SME Conference to be a gateway leading to this optimal outcome for you.

We are mindful that your creativity, resilience and determination to succeed against the odds have already positioned you as a key pillar of Jamaica’s economy. Research shows that the small to medium business sector has the potential to create employment and reduce income disparity whilst contributing to the socio-economic buoyancy of any country. SMEs are also considered an incubator for the development of entrepreneurial skills across all economic groups.

NCB will continue to bolster this critical sector through special business and credit services, as well as through training, guidance and special recognition. We want to help ensure that our SME’s are equipped to make the transition to the ‘big business’ category that expands beyond Jamaica’s borders and brings prosperity to our sovereign nation.

This conference is being held under the highly relevant theme: “Facing Challenges – Embracing Opportunities” which embodies a mindset we wish to reinforce among our SMEs. The sessions are intended to allow you to explore business opportunities, enhance export/import networks, learn cutting-edge SME market trends, establish contacts and exchange views & ideas.

We are pleased to welcome our distinguished speakers who are pioneers in international and local businesses. We are deeply grateful for the time and resources you have dedicated to fostering such dialogue and we know the knowledge and experiences that you share will prove a game changer for many of our participating SMEs.

We thank our partners, whose support has helped make our Conference a reality. Partner representatives will be present at various events throughout the Conference, and we encourage our SME’s to explore business opportunities with them.

Again, a warm welcome our SME partners. We hope you find the Conference an engaging one that enhances your understanding of your business niche, helps you to build out your peer network, and prepares you to grasp the opportunities for growth that are awaiting you. Let NCB help you to put your best life forward always.
