The Jakarta administration has launched an online platform for small and micro enterprises (SMEs), allowing them to market their products to various regions in Indonesia through the city's official website.
Jakarta Governor Basuki "Ahok" Tjahaja Purnama said the platform was the follow-up of a training program held by the administration for the SMEs.
"We have given the training and now they are ready. Today's the launch [of the webpage]," Ahok said as quoted by beritajakarta.com.
The platform will feature around 150 selected SMEs across the city for now, an official said.
"The selected ones should be ready in terms of the product's quantity, so they could fulfill the customer's order immediately," said Irwandi, the head of the city's Cooperation, SMEs and Trading Agency.
The administration worked with online marketplace Tokopedia, one of the biggest e-commerce players in Indonesia, to create the platform. (kuk/dmr)
