At the same time, during 2021, with the support of the Government and external development partners, ODIMM will launch new initiatives that will increase the competitiveness of SMEs, offering entrepreneurs, as well as those in difficulty, business development opportunities, thus encouraging technology transfer and growth throughout the whole value chain.
