The Small & Medium Enterprise (SME) Foundation, organised the webinar styled "Possibilities and Challenges of the 4th Industrial Revolution: SME Perspective".

"With the discovery of technology, the cost of production and distribution of goods and services will be reduced at an unprecedented rate as machines will help people," he said.

About 70 SME entrepreneurs from different parts of the country took part in the two-hour-long webinar.

Md Mafizur Rahman, managing director of SME Foundation, presided over the event, where Tanvir Faisal, deputy manager of the foundation presented the key notepaper.
