In March this year, the Government of Telangana launched, Telangana State GlobalLinker, an MSME networking portal to digitize over 2.3 million MSMEs of the state.

Emphasizing the importance of digitization, Shri Jayesh Ranjan, IAS, Principal Secretary to Govt. (Industries and Commerce) said: “Digitization is going to be one of the game changers for MSME businesses as it helps them cater to customers beyond local boundaries, allows their profit to grow twice as fast and substantially increases their contribution to GDP. The solution aims to address key challenges faced by MSMEs with the core objective of making their business growth – simpler, more profitable and enjoyable"

In their July 2019 newsletter the Government of Telangana, featured the various events organised by Telangana State GlobalLinker, thereby encouraging MSMEs to join the platform to grow their business. With over 2.3 million MSMEs in the state, the government is encouraging MSMEs to take advantage of the benefits provided on this platform such as - free e-commerce store, access to quality knowledge, access to global networking opportunities to find buyers & suppliers, economies of scale on a wide range of business services, access to industry news and more.

Here are the highlights from the newsletter.

As part of this objective, Telangana State GlobalLinker was launched this quarter-a unique digital networking platform that digitises and connects MSMEs within Telangana, with over 250,000 SMEs globally.
