Maybank Indonesia Economic Outlook 2023, “Sustaining Indonesia’s Economic Recovery Momentum”

Jakarta, 15 March 2023 - Rudi Eko (Director of PT Garudafood Putra Putri Jaya Tbk) was one of the panelists at the Maybank Indonesia Economic Outlook 2023 event "Sustaining Indonesia's Economic Recovery Momentum" which was held offline at the Grand Ballroom of Hotel Indonesia Kempinski in Jakarta, Wednesday - 15 March 2023.

Session 1 of the Panel Discussion raised the topic of "Recovering Together with MSMEs to Seize Post-Pandemic Opportunities" moderated by Steffano Ridwan (Director of Community Financial Services, PT Bank Maybank Indonesia Tbk), the other panelists were Supari (Director of Micro Business BRI) and Dyah Probondari (Head of Legal and IPR Division DPP AKUMANDIRI - Indonesian MSME Industry Association).

On this occasion, Rudi Eko said that in the digitalization era and the growing e-commerce business, one of the industries that support it and is developing is the logistics industry. Garudafood is also developing the Point of Distribution Expansion (PDE) partnership, which is a win-win solution collaboration in terms of distribution in cooperation with customers who are mostly traditional markets and are also part of MSMEs.

This is a challenge because they are passive traditional business actors in stores and deliver without planning. Garudafood guides by providing training and creating a warehouse management system as well as teaching smart routing using the 'Ngirim' application to have more effective and efficient delivery.

This was a hybrid event attended by 500 participants (offline and online via Zoom) with a target of 1,000 participants and was also attended by Airlangga Hartarto (Indonesian Coordinating Minister for Economic Affairs) as the keynote speaker, representatives from the Ministry of Cooperatives and SMEs, Ministry of Finance, President Director of Maybank Indonesia, and President Director of Metro TV.
