“This number has increased compared to the Pertamina SMEXPO 2020 event. Previously, a total of 15 countries listed as potential buyers were dominated by Australia. Meanwhile, at the Pertamina SMEXPO 2021 event, there are 20 countries dominated by the United States,” she said.
Fajriyah added the large potential for business transactions during the Pertamina SMEXPO 2021 event shows that this event is much awaited and in demand by global business players as well as showing MSEs’ products of Pertamina’s fostered partners that have been recognized worldwide.
“Hopefully, Pertamina SMEXPO will be a motivation, providing fresh air for MSEs in the country to do their best and produce quality products. Therefore, they can be marketed to almost all continents,” said Fajriyah.
According to Fajriyah, the enthusiasm of global market players for MSE products in Indonesia has also encouraged Pertamina to continue Pertamina SMEXPO with a larger scale and products. Therefore, there are more opportunities for MSEs to promote their products through digital marketing.
“Pertamina will continue to encourage MSEs to upgrade so they can compete globally,” added Fajriyah”
