This committee represents the large group of Small and Medium sized Enterprises (SMEs) and Start-ups that are member of the Dutch Chamber. The SME Committee aims to offer a place for SMEs to meet and share experiences. It assists SMEs in their businesses and helps to solve obstacles faced in Hong Kong and Mainland China.
This committee identifies areas of interest and organizes specific SME events, such as seminars and practical workshops on a diverse range of topics. Traditionally, the SME Committee also organises a Christmas Soap Box event, whereby SME contestants combat each other on the Soapbox, and an annual SME VrijMiBo during the summer.
An initiative of the Dutch Chamber, this committee aims to connect SMEs from 15 different chambers. This committee organises larger practical seminars covering topics such as IPR, e-Commerce strategies, IT and funding.
