'SME Times' - the first news portal for SMEs/ exporters launched

Bikky Khosla | 03 Apr, 2008
Nine times out of ten exporters, mostly in the SME sector, tend to lag behind because they are ill informed about the world around them. Most of them are into business with very little or no knowledge of the market realities. They are blissfully unaware of what their competitors are doing. Thus they are unable to keep up with the changing times.
Today's dynamic economic scenario calls for keeping oneself up to date with the changes in policies - both domestic and global. Despite the initiatives/ schemes offered by the government, many SMEs are unaware of them because information on these schemes never reach them.
To keep SMEs and exporters informed on the recent policy changes, international trends and how these changes might affect their businesses, Tradeindia has launched the first news portal "SME Times" entirely dedicated to SMEs and exporters.
The news portal will be a one-stop information library for the exim sector and is Tradeindia's initiative to help SMEs improve their business practices.
Apart from a daily dose of news, the USP of the portal will rest on the value-added articles written by its staffers, experts and freelancers. These articles will only cover such issues which SME-holders can profit from.
The portal has been carefully designed to fulfill the needs of each and every SME. Over nine clearly demarcated categories and more than 16 sub-categories will carry news reports that are updated on a minute-to-minute basis.
The perceptive of industry stalwarts on polity matters is of utmost importance for SMEs to read and act upon accordingly. Thus the 'Editorial' and 'Indepth' sections will have the views of our Editor and a panel of experts respectively. Any new development that will have an impact on the industry will be discussed extensively in these sections.
The other value-added features including 'Market watch' and 'Forex rates' will keep readers updated to a fraction of change.
The portal has also been made very interactive to facilitate readers to share their views and opinions on individual news.
Now it's up to you...whether you want to stay informed or remain ignorant. The choice is yours!

Ignorance of conditions
Adrian Akau | Thu Apr 10 23:44:14 2008
Ignorance of competitive conditions dealing not only with export of items but of development of energy resources leads eventually to economic failure. For example, the characteristics of the PV market are changing rapidly with the introduction of thin film technology and any company entering in this area must know that the thin printed cells and multicrystalline silicon with reflective surface modifications have changed the entire nature of solar energy production. Unless high sun concentrated cells come down in price (by a factor of about 10) and low concentrated sun (2x) regular monocrystalline (regular) is greatly improved, both stand to be displaced by the thin film and multicrystalline silicon technology. Investment, by nature, must then change over to the lower production cost per watt devices.
