A word from the Mr Ahmed Zaghdar , Minister of Industry, on the occasion of the launch of the digital platform of the Innovation Prize.
On the occasion of the launch of the digital platform for the organization of the 11th edition of the National Prize for Innovative Small and Medium Enterprises, I am pleased at the outset to congratulate everyone for this qualitative leap initiated by the sector to encourage economic institutions to participate actively in this important competition by simplifying and facilitating administrative procedures and making them accessible to all.
Such initiatives concretely translate the efforts of the public authorities to take care qualitatively of the concerns and aspirations of the economic operators facing the challenges of the new world characterized by the generalization of modern means of communication.
As far as the organisation of the Innovation Award is concerned, it aims to achieve a set of objectives, in particular to reward and encourage small and medium-sized enterprises for their efforts in integrating innovation into their strategic path as a necessary tool for improving their competitiveness in a constantly changing environment.
The development of small and medium-sized enterprises will only be achieved through the embodiment of a strong and effective innovation policy that enables the development of their products and helps them to penetrate national and foreign markets.
Therefore, and based on the results achieved in the organisation of this economic event, to which the government attaches great importance, I would like to take this opportunity to invite the leaders of small and medium-sized enterprises to participate intensively in the current edition, the eleventh, in order to create a strong competitive atmosphere between the bearers of innovative projects, and I am sure that the launch of the digital platform will be a motivating and encouraging factor.
