The ‘International Workshop on Entrepreneurship in Socially Responsible Businesses for Development in Asia and the Pacific' which will be held from 16-18 October, 2013, at the Entrepreneurship Development Institute of India (EDI) at Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India.

The workshop is undertaken by the Asia-Pacific Sustainable Business Network’s (SBN) Task Force on Social Enterprise and Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs). Pursuing the broad objectives of the Task Force, this event will kick-start the first in a series of events covering three regions of Asia and the Pacific with a three-day Policy Level International Workshop on “Entrepreneurship in Socially Responsible Business for Development in Asia and The Pacific” coupled with a “Young Business Leaders Programme”. The workshop is sponsored by the Industrial Development Bank of India Ltd. & Small Industries Development Bank of India (SIDBI).

We would like to thank Dr. Narain, Chair of the EBAC Task Force on MSMEs and Entrepreneurship in Business and Development, for taking the initiative to set up both workshops. This is an excellent example of success to be taken forward by other Sustainable Business Network Task Forces. Also we would like to thank Akash Bhavsar who participated as a facilitator on the topics of Business Responsibility Towards Environmental Protection, and Environment and Socially Responsible Business.
