Therefore, it is considered important to carry out BUMD's transformation programs through collaboration with all BUMDs in Jakarta.
"Ideally, BUMD should be able to survive in competing with private sector. Especially during the pandemic. So, we really need to be resilient in many ways. Alhamdulillah, through various policies adapted by Mr. Anies, we can survive facing COVID-19 pandemic. The challenge is, how do we restore the growth of economic activities. It really depends on our roles, especially BUMDs," he asserted as quoted from Jakarta PPID Press Release.
Through BUMD transformation, he expected all Jakarta BUMDs can be more professional in carrying out their functions thus they will be able to compete and ready to face the business dynamics, including during the COVID-19 pandemic.
"We hope all BUMDs start to identify their assets and so on. Thus we can optimize the assets. Look ahead and expand the market, look for the strategic investor partners, build national-scale and even regional businesses, and create high-value jobs. Build the food security, empower UMKM thus we can go forward. Collaborate with investor and global institutions to support UMKM to improve," he conveyed.
He appreciated and welcomed the positive synergy of stakeholders who collaborate with TGUPP, BUMD Management Body (BP), and Jakarta BUMD Academy in holding Business Forum in order to develop BUMD Business Model Transformation for its sustainability and existence.
