Lahore city and its regions are now on the move, and soon it will have  its umbrella 1 million small medium enterprises.

Lahore Chamber of Commerce Upskilling 25,000 Small Medium Businesses: If you see a single person running in circles you only wonder why; but when you see 200 running in circles it becomes Olympics. Systematic organization brings nations and players together. When you uplift one Small Medium or Large Enterprise, it is a good cause, but when you mobilize 25,000 businesses in simultaneous synchronization, it becomes super-gigantic flying carpets in search of global customers. The new art and science of national mobilization of entrepreneurialism on platform economies and upskilling of midsize businesses of a nation has become turbo-charged solution on growth and exportability. Today, in hyperactive connected world of instant gratification society, global ‘showcasing of entrepreneurialism’, SME by SME, upskilling talents and quality production attracts worldwide attention. All this creates local/global alliances with new revenue streaming opportunities but new style thinking a must.

Lahore city and its regions are now on the move, and soon with other Chambers and Associations coming under the umbrella, the number will raise to 1,000,000 small medium enterprises. There is a high-level discussion on digitization of national entrepreneurialism and mobilization of Small Medium Business economy and innovative excellence on Wednesday, August 26, 2020, in Lahore.

The future already arrived yesterday; just open the doors

The 5-Alliance Nations: While, Russia, Turkey, China, Iran and Pakistan are proceeding in creating a 5-Nation Alliance, the role Pakistan as key partner in China Pakistan Economic Corridor, CPEC will uplift the regions in balance and peace, The Five Nation Block economies will change global landscapes of trade and economic superiority balance.

Emerging nations can suddenly become on way to becoming developed economies when they adopt the followings; abandon YouTube and Social Media as prime source of education, as relying on Tik-Tok micro-learning tempo is not enough and only damages the brain. Without seriously organized and calibrated upskilling and lifelong learning national economy will stay crippled. The world economy is not a video game. The national economy is not a math puzzle. This is all about hard-core value creation and uplifting of grass roots economy to occupy working citizenry.  Remember, all such forgotten during last decades in hologramic economies and globalization charades. The traditional University education is now way behind times, expensive and untradeable at job-creation. National mobilization and mass upskilling of working citizenry are now the new protocols.

The Deep Silence: The formula for digitization of any nation is not a secret, but the execution is a serious threat, why? Despite common availability of almost free technologies, any open discussion in any major Public or Private Sectors department anywhere in the world immediately exposes some 50% redundancy of surrounding staff and equally 50% incompetency to deal with the required challenges. Therefore, staying quiet or appearing overly busy is normally the case, and strangulation of local economic progress accepted normalcy. Follow the trail of deep silence. Creation of regional and nation debates with authoritative contents replacing lip service and half-baked rhetoric is under pandemic watch. Upskilling of senior management of Public Sector on fast track basis is the only way to get ahead.

The Summary: ask top leadership to declare national mobilization of small and medium business economy and active national upskilling programs by simultaneously retraining all key ‘public sectors’ and ‘trade group’ frontline management to become global age savvy and digitization friendly. This is what pandemic recovery demands in simple words. What is stopping, what help is needed?

Get ready for the next 1,000 days, there no time to waste.
