GS1 Mauritius participated in a workshop on 'Potential Exporters Programme' organised by Small and Medium Enterprises Development Authority (SMEDA) on 27 September 2016.
This workshop which regrouped around 100 entrepreneurs, has been organised to support local SMEs having the potential to export, but which are not necessarily aware of the procedures. Representatives from the Mauritius Export Association, Enterprise Mauritius, Mauritius Standards Bureau as well as the Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Consumer Protection also intervened to impart knowledge on the various kinds of exports procedures.
The presentation delivered by Miss Fazlee Dhuny focused on the importance of adopting GS1 Barcodes when exporting and dealing with freight forwarders, customs and stakeholders in the exporting countries. The benefits of adopting GS1 Barcodes versus proprietary barcodes were also explained.
