Koror, Palau – The Palau Small Business Development Center has been providing innovative, quality training in Palau on various small business topics ranging from start-up requirements and business planning, to programs on credit and financing, marketing, and accounting. On Thursday, September 27, 2018, Palau SBDC conducted its second annual Business Forum at the Kedarm Conference room at the Palau International Coral Reef Center (PICRC) in Koror, Palau. The Business Forum focused on using land in business transactions, such as using land as collateral or security for a business loan and using land owned by other people through lease agreements or land use rights.
SBDC partnered with Attorney Siegfried B. Nakamura, Palau Chamber of Commerce, Bank of Hawaii, National Development Bank of Palau, and a local entrepreneur, Ms. Tarita Holm, to conduct this very special training event. Participants learned great opportunities in the private sector from PCOC’s Executive Director Adora Nobuo and SBDC’s Center Director Ltelatk Fritz. While the highlight of the 2018 Business Forum was Siegfried’s informative panel on the current issues of doing business with public and private lands within the Republic of Palau. SBDC would like to shows its deep appreciation to Siegfried Nakamura for donating time to be on the Business Forum’s morning panel. SBDC also wants to express its appreciation to the Bank of Hawaii and NDBP for participating in SBDC’s Business Forum, for two consecutive years. Last but not least, SBDC wishes to thank Ms. Tarita Holms for presenting important insights on sustainable development and corporate social responsibility. SBDC also wishes to thank all the people who participated in the 2018 Business Forum.
