A week after the Cabinet reshuffle, the State-Owned Enterprises (SOEs) Ministry has replaced Silmy Karim, ending his two-year tenure as head of Indonesian arms manufacturer PT Pindad.

The government has appointed Abraham Mose, who previously served as president director of state-owned electronics manufacturer PT LEN Industri, to helm the state-owned arms producer.

The ministry’s deputy for mining, strategic industries and media, Fajar Harry Sampurno, said that Silmy had suceeded in improving the previous company’s performance, and therefore the government had decided to use his expertise to assist the operation of another SOE.

“Silmy has worked impressively in Pindad. We plan to promote him to lead another enterprise,” Fajar told journalists on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, Abraham said that he would continue improving the company by developing various products, including non-military products.

“We will continue expanding our non-military product lines, such as excavators and rail clips, for extra income,” he said in a press statement. (rez/ags)
