The National Research and Innovation Agency (BRIN) stated that Indonesia's economic strength has been going well. It's just that the synergy of economic power is not optimal.
"Cooperatives, large corporations, MSMEs are doing well. We improve how MSMEs go up in class, large corporations share with other economic actors," said the Head of the Research Center for Cooperatives, Corporations, and the People's Economy of BRIN, Irwanda Wisnu Wardhana, during a conversation with Pro3 RRI, Thursday (1/12/2022).
He said the business model was not as optimal as expected. There is a character that MSME actors cannot be invited to go to class.
"There are MSMEs that don't want to open branches. Then there are MSMEs that don't want to deal with taxes," he said.
The Coordinating Minister for the Economy Airlangga Hartarto encouraged the improvement of the quality of MSME products. Namely through the establishment of product standardization.
Along with the increasing needs and understanding of society regarding product quality. So producers are required to be able to produce products that are highly competitive.
So product standardization becomes one of the elements. That is so that business actors can increase competitiveness and expand marketing access. (RRI)
