About the Seminar

In the emerging global economy, e-commerce and e-business have increasingly become a necessary component of business strategy and a strong catalyst for economic development. The integration of information and communications technology (ICT) in business has revolutionized relationships within organizations and individuals.

Developments in Internet resulted in strategic positioning; determinining emerging opportunities and utilizing intellectual resources to make the most of these opportunities through an e-business strategy that is simple, workable and practicable within the context of a global information milieu and new economic environment. Internet commerce coupled with the appropriate strategy and policy approach enables small and medium scale enterprises to compete with large and capital-rich businesses. On another plane, developing countries are given increased access to the global marketplace, where they compete with the more developed economies. The objective of this seminar is pertaining to all economic activities using electronic networks as a medium for commerce. The seminar is expected to draw wide participation from the academic circle and includes opportunities to network with delegates as well.
