Azlan Othman

The United States-ASEAN Business Council (US-ABC), the US Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) on Friday officially launched ASEAN SME Academy 2.0, an upgraded version of the online learning platform.

Themed ‘Adapt, Upskill, Excel: Building ASEAN SMEs’ Resilience with the ASEAN SME Academy 2.0’, the launch was the climax of a revamp project that began in 2021, aimed at introducing and publicising the upgrades and new features of the ASEAN SME Academy 2.0 website.

Aiming to reach more micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) and help accelerate their business recoveries, SME Academy 2.0 introduces new features, including courses available in local languages (Indonesian, Thai and Vietnamese), new attractive visual design features and top-quality resources including specific modules for COVID-19 recovery.
