The Minister of Cooperatives and Small and Medium Enterprises, Teten Masduki, at the meeting with Shipper said, “We welcome Shipper’s collaboration initiative with the Ministry of Cooperatives and SMEs to accelerate MSMEs to reach the next level. The Indonesian economy relies a lot on MSMEs, therefore the government strives to get MSMEs into the digital ecosystem. As of June 2022, we have recorded that 19.5 million MSMEs have entered the e-commerce platform from the target of 30 million in 2024. In addition, through this collaboration, we seek to build market optimism by maintaining economic growth in the third quarter, which in the second quarter has reached 5.44%,”
In the PLUT program, Shipper prepares a series of intelligent logistics and warehouse technology empowerment programs that is integrated with various themes, namely export and import, quality and capacity improvement of business products, business development, and partnerships. The meeting with the Ministry of Cooperatives and SMEs is a follow-up action to the results of Shipper’s hearing with the Coordinating Ministry for Economic Affairs, where Shipper listens to the aspirations of MSME actors regarding the need for support for access to funds, logistics, and local goods manufacture. Therefore, Shipper also chooses Imajin as a partner in the production sector and Modal Rakyat as a partner in the financing sector, as well as exploring opportunities for further collaboration to realize the aspirations of MSME actors.
