This training was conducted by me, Yes I am also a part of CWCCI. Recently I joined as an Advisor for the Business Development Support Center of CWCCI-ILO Progress Project. The main objective of the training is to provide basic knowledge of the E-Commerce platform. How an SME can transform their business from F-Commerce to E-Commerce. Those who are currently maintaining their business on F-commerce can start their business on the E-commerce platform.
Total 30 participants have participated in this training and they’re satisfied with the course. They all are now interested in transferring their business to E-Commerce from F-Commerce. FYI, E-Cab also has collaborated with CWCCI and a total of 100 SMEs will get the same training program among them a total of 40 participants will get the chance to create their E-Commerce website with 100% free of cost.
I’ve been providing training for a long time and as a trainer for the last couple of years I’ve trained so many SMEs on F-Commerce business. Now with this training, I am trying to shift them from F-Commerce to an E-Commerce platform so that they can contribute more and develop their business as well as change their luck.
