(CMR) The Ministry of Commerce, Planning and Infrastructure is encouraging businesses to make the transition from physical brick and mortar establishments to online platforms.
The ministry said the transition could help to save businesses currently suffering a loss of revenue due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In an effort to help businesses make the transition, the ministry through the Cayman Islands Centre for Business Development (CICBD) will continue to host its webinar series.
The next session titled, “Moving Your Business Online” will be hosted by CICBD in partnership with John C. Bodden and Megan Ritch of Cayman Aisles Web Services (CAWS).
The session takes place on Thursday, May 14, 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. and is expected to cover topics such as, evaluating business models, going the E-Commerce route and online business safety.
CAWS provides online retail, service, event and fundraising/crowdfunding options to local businesses and organisations through its website, and e-commerce platforms.
The Cayman Islands Centre for Business Development was opened in March this year to provide support to businesses across the Islands especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.
