Hj. Rizayati encourages economic revival in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic
Jakarta (ANN) | The handling of the Covid-19 pandemic, especially for the micro, small and medium business (MSME) segment, has shown positive results. This is marked by the activity of MSME business actors, to encourage the rise of the national economy. This was conveyed by a national businessman from Bireuen, Aceh, Dr (Cn) Hj. Rizayati, SH, MM
“This shows a positive trend, 84 percent of MSME business actors have managed to return to their activities,” said Hj. Rizayati told the StrategiNetwork news agency, Tuesday (8/2/2022)
Hj. Rizayati said that the development of the MSME business sector is not only the responsibility of the government, but the role of the private sector is also very necessary.
“The government and private entrepreneurs must continue to synergize in making efforts to restore the economy affected by the pandemic through various programs that touch the MSME sector,” said the initiator of the Bright Indonesia Program.
According to the winner of a number of prestigious national awards, the MSME sector is one of the sectors hardest hit in the midst of the pandemic.
The sluggishness of the MSME world has had a major impact, because this segment has a fairly high absorption of labor and investment. Currently, the number of MSMEs in Indonesia is around 64.2 million, and they are able to collect 60.42 percent of the country’s total investment.
In order for these MSMEs to go up in class and have competitiveness, Hj. Rizayati also encourages MSME actors to move to the online market through various available buying and selling platforms.
This digital space can be accessed by everyone in many places, enabling MSMEs to survive in difficult times like today. “MSME business actors must continue to innovate by utilizing digital platforms, considering the current era of digitalization.
The digitization of MSMEs must be increased, considering that 58 percent of the Indonesian population has made digital transactions with high economic value,” explained the President Director of PT. Imza Rizky Jaya.
To increase the empowerment of MSMEs, said Hj. Rizayati, the Bright Indonesia Party continues to make various efforts to boost MSMEs in the country, as well as provide assistance to MSMEs so that they continue to grow so that they can contribute to national economic recovery. ( ris/red )
