Company Trade Promotion Reports Assist SMEs to Obtain Financing
SMEs usually need financial support in running their business. When applying for a bank loan from BEA, BEA will issue a written request to the applicant for a "Company Trade Promotion Report" or a "Company Information Report" from TDC for use as a reference for acquiring bank loans.
This arrangement is only applicable to TDC's local customers or companies registered in its Trade Enquiry Databank. The applicants can make the request in writing to TDC to apply for the reports, together with the written request issued by BEA. The applicants may present the reports to BEA as reference for assessing their applications for financing. BEA reserves the right to the approval of loan application and will make decision based on its criteria of loan approval.
