“We were greatly impressed by the high standards and enthusiasm of the entrants in this year’s competition and warmly congratulate all entrants,” said Wong. “We had an increase of entrants by 50 percent. This is an outstanding result which reflects the fact that our Business Awards is a popular platform being used for local SMEs for recognition and publicity.”
Judging criteria included an entrant’s professional approach to business practice, their standard of marketing strategies, level of innovation, creativity and proportion of import/export turnover.
