What will make the difference in the years to come, in the maintenance of these resources and the dignified treatment of human capital, will be precisely the technology component. Through e-commerce, SMEs can open new paths of profits. Human capital, especially young people, can offer online services without having to emigrate.

FIAA's focus in the next 2 years will be, among other things, bringing together business forces to attract capital, in support of new technologies and innovation.
