Google is eyeing 10 million small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in Indonesia to avail themselves of its business services by 2020.

The company had begun to offer training courses for SMEs in Indonesia in 2015 and currently served 1 million SME customers, Google Indonesia marketing head Veronika Utami said on Friday, adding that the participating SMEs and their products appeared in Google’s search engine.

“There are many people who search for businesses through Google,” Veronika said, as reported by kontan.co.id, adding that some SMEs saw annual growth of up to 80 percent after they began to utilize the Google facility.

Google Indonesia policy head Putri Alam said SMEs could use Google to market their products in other countries so that they could expand their exports.

“[With Google], the probability [to get foreign buyers] is four times higher than if they rely only on their outlets,” Putri said, adding that Google wanted to support the government’s efforts to promote digital business services. (bbn)
