Wharf T&T Receives the Best SME's Partner Award from HKCSMB
Wharf T&T Limited ("Wharf T&T") today announced that the Hong Kong Chamber of Small and Medium Business (HKCSMB) has honoured Wharf T&T with the Best SME's Partner Award 2007, the first telecommunication company and information technology service provider achieving the recognition. Recognised for its commitment and efforts in facilitating the development of the SME sector in Hong Kong, Wharf T&T was presented with the award at the Chamber's eleventh anniversary dinner held on 15 May 2007. Altogether, sixteen corporations were elected the best SME's partner this year.

The Best SME's Partner Award was first launched in 2006 in conjunction with the Best SME Award with an aim of honouring corporate enterprises and SMEs for their commitment and achievement to fostering the development and operation of Hong Kong's SME market segment.

Assessed by a panel of distinguished independent judges comprising of senior Government officials, industry experts and university scholars, each submission had to go through a stringent validation and evaluation process before being scored on the basis of the provision of tailor-made products and services, well-defined goals, supportive organizational structure and behaviour as well as a proper communications channel which would support a thriving SME community.

"It is with great pleasure that Wharf T&T is the first information and communications technology service provider awarded with the Best SME's Partner by the HKCSMB," said Vincent Ma, President of Wharf T&T. "We focus on enabling customers' businesses with our domain know-how and superior communications and information technology solutions. The award validates the pivotal role we play in helping our SME customers to succeed in their businesses and this is not only important to Wharf T&T, to our customers, but also to the overall economy of Hong Kong."
