With their huge potential, the Government of India is taking different measures to increase their competitiveness in the international market but there is still a lot required to give much needed thrust to SMEs. The decade that has gone by has seen tremendous growth in internet penetration across India this has given a large number of small businesses an opportunity to reach out to global market using e-commerce platforms Business-to-business e-commerce platforms provide small businesses with opportunities to establish their presence on the internet by providing them a one-stop shop, identifying potential trading partners, learning more about global trade, sharing trading experience and letting buyers and suppliers communicate and interact effectively, hence conducting business deals successfully.
