APEC highlights activities to help small and medium sized enterprises with business continuity planning

In its latest Bulletin, APEC (Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation) has provided details of what it is doing to assist regional SMEs to develop business continuity plans.

The Bulletin focuses on a multi-year project launched in 2011 by APEC to enhance the capacity of SMEs to prepare for disasters and to ensure “minimal and tolerable disruption to business operations and supply chains”.

“The main goal of the APEC project is to promote SMEs to establish business continuity plans for sustainable global supply chains,” Johnny Yeh, executive director of the APEC SME Crisis Management Center in Chinese Taipei, told the APEC Bulletin. Mr. Yeh is overseeing the APEC project.

“This is accomplished by training related government, non-profit and private sector organizations in APEC member economies, so they, in turn can train SMEs in their respective economies,” Mr Yeh continued.

As part of the project, experts have developed a simple step-by-step APEC Business Continuity Planning Guidebook for SMEs.
