I am highly delighted to be part of this great event of your organisation. Holding a conference on Covid-19 which is a recent phenomenon that accounts for major disruption all over the world. 

This pandemic touches all areas of human endeavour (health, education, businesses and hospitality etc). However, the impact of SMEs takes vital positions by accounting for the shortfall in the production activities of major manufacturing companies. Hence, the SMEs have shown its significance to the socio-economic activities of our life.

This conference theme comes at the right time when the pandemic is peaking within the country and assures professionals both in the private and public sector that there is life after the pandemic has been contained. 

It also avails each professional sharing their experience (both good and bad) managing the pandemic and measures to be taken (beyond the health-related advice) to manage and survive the pandemic and most importantly how to prepare for the opportunities the post-pandemic period will present to all professions and expert for the good of mankind in general.
