Business Link Pacific (BLP) is a New Zealand Government funded multi-country program operating in Vanuatu, and partnering with the Vanuatu Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI) to offer qualified small to medium size enterprise (SME) to initially access services via a subsidy program available through local business advisory service providers (BASP).
Kesha Licht has recently joined the VCCI team as a new Business Services Support Specialist, helping SMEs access professional services throughout Vanuatu. She will work closely with Business Link Pacific and Vanuatu Chambers of Commerce and Industry to support SMEs in Vanuatu by referring them (SME) to affordable and appropriate services and advisors via BLP Subsidy Scheme.
The VCCI ‘Triage Program’ means she will deal directly with SMEs to assess their business needs, diagnose priority issues and eventually find solutions and services from local Business Advisory Service Providers. These Business Advisory Service Providers will eventually assist SMEs to grow their businesses, improve their operations and access needed technology through experienced local advisors, technical experts and business professionals throughout Vanuatu.
For any interested BASP who wish to participate in the Triage programme, market services to SMEs and partner with BLP for potential client subsidies, please contact the VCCI office. Any local BASP is eligible to apply. No restrictions.
Business Link Pacific offers a conditional Subsidy (Funding) Scheme that will enable Small to Medium Enterprises to try out new services at more affordable rates and realise the value of these services in their business operations to drive efficiency, growth and expansion. The Subsidy Scheme also helps service providers (BASP) to develop and launch new services tailored specifically to SME needs.
Please feel free to drop by the Chamber’s Office or contact Kesha for more information on the Triage Programme and how to access business support and the BLP Subsidy Scheme.
