|APEC Survey: BCP Status in APEC Region |
As to address the natural disaster threat underpinning Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), Chinese Taipei proposed a APEC Multi-Year Project on Improving Natural Disaster Resilience of APEC SMEs to assist APEC economies and SMEs on developing disaster preemptive mechanisms. As a part of the efforts to assist SMEs on developing disaster preemptive mechanisms, Chinese Taipei is seeking to assess the status of Business Continuity Plans (BCPs) in the APEC survey through conducting a survey.
The survey consists of 23 questions, and is specifically engineered to extract information to assess SMEs’ status on the development of BCPs. Chinese Taipei would like to extend a warmest appreciation for all the delegates and companies for completing the survey. Should you have any enquiries regarding the survey, please feel free to contact.
