The project Kite has produced newsletters which act as a dissemination vehicle for the support of the G8 Working Group "A Global Market Place for SMEs" as well as a means of creating a Europe-wide focus on electronic commerce. Its content is of particular benefit to SMEs, which have limited resources for information gathering.
