The Malta eBusiness Seminar, held on 2 May at the Westin Dragonara Resort, attracted more than 130 delegates who shared their experience and learnt more about the increased ebusiness opportunities available.

The event, a joint initiative by CSB Group in conjunction with the Malta Institute of Management (MIM), kicked off with Parliamentary Secretary for Competitiveness and Economic Growth Edward Zammit Lewis addressing those present.

In his opening remarks, Dr Zammit Lewis highlighted that eBusiness was an important pillar for Malta’s digital economy, adding that the government’s aim is to enhance the sector.

The internet has indeed changed the way the world does business, however is of great importance that local companies understand how they can make full use and benefit of eBusiness technologies.

It was therefore no surprise that the event attracted a large number of business owners and individuals looking to take the entrepreneurial plunge and look into new ways of marketing, sales, and business development online.

The event, which was chaired by Emma Diacono, and deemed as highly successful, discussed a number of topics including payment gateways to legal implications, ‘Cloud’ computing, online marketing and mobile banking, among others.

CSB Group CEO Michael J. Zammit said that ‘‘the group aims to remain at the forefront of eBusiness and is set to continue with its developments with the aim of tapping further into foreign markets to help enhance Malta’s digital economy”.

CSB Advocates’ Andrew J. Zammit said that “we are extremely satisfied with the quality of speakers who gave valuable practical insight into the digital economy and its tremendous potential.
