OUR MAIN FOCUS
ERA’s main focus is on creating opportunities and avenues through our extensive networking for our members to put their expertise, experience, and valuable know-how to good use, in both public and private projects. We can match the needs of organizations in the manufacturing and service industries to ERA’s experts in various fields.
Our experienced teams can assist your organizations to resolve business challenges, carry out R&D works, incorporate innovation in competitive strategy, enabling strategic alignment and marketing to out-perform rivals and achieve positive growth, enhance performance and attain sustainability.
Our recent projects include:
Management and technical training (with emphasis on local SMEs, as well as in overseas companies such as Kenya, Myanmar and elsewhere).
Assistance in gaining access to government incentives, financial assistance, and facilities from banking and financial institutions.
