The Workshop on Training for Small- and Medium-sized Enterprises from Portuguese-speaking Countries will take place in Macao between April 15 and 28. The workshop has been organised by the Training Centre of the Forum for Economic and Trade Co-operation between China and Portuguese-speaking Countries (Macao).

A total of 27 participants have enrolled for the workshop. They represent authorities, associations and companies from Brazil, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau, Mozambique, Portugal and East Timor.

This will be the first 2016 workshop organised by the Training Centre of Forum Macao. It is being presented in co-operation with the City University of Macau.

Several lectures, visits and exchange sessions related to Small- and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) will be held during the period of the workshop, including presentations on SME development, investment and trade, fiscal policy, and import and export of products.
