TWENTY-three select small and medium enterprises clarified their business plans on their lines of products and services at the Ayeyawady Riverview hotel in Mandalay yesterday.
The group was selected under the programme of SME development strategy jointly organised by the International Labour Organisation and the AAT Business Park.
Daw Aye Aye Than of AAT Business Park said the programme was the first in the country to be organised under the ILO’s provision of technical assistance to startups.
