PT Jasa Marga (Persero) Tbk. participated in the LinkAja Festival taking place in Sidoarjo Gelora Delta Stadium, East Java, on Sunday (04/07). Jasa Marga included its five fostered partners in this SOE Ministry's 21st Anniversary serial event.
SOE Minister Rini Soemarno, Jasa Marga's President Director Desi Arryani and several other SOE Board of Directors, and hundreds of East Java Jasa Marga's employees attended.
Rini Soemarno, in her welcome speech, emphasized that even though the nationwide SOEs are from different fields, but their objectives are the same.
“Some concentrate in creations, ports, airports, and even bankings. But, the most important thing is that we have the same goal, whether it's airport, banking, but we are all moving for one purpose, the nation,” she said.
The five fostered partners of Jasa Marga had been under Jasa Marga's supervision for two years from 2015 to 2017, under Jasa Marga Surabaya Gempol Branch.
They displayed and sold their products - East Javanese local snacks, such as Aloe sticks, Moringa leaf sticks, Aloe vera pudding, Java ginger moss pudding, meatball tofu, mini dry pastel and so on.
“I express my gratitude to Jasa Marga who has given us a lot of support as one of their MSMEs. Through this event, we are able to introduce our products to all parts of the community,” said Anis Puji, one of the MSME practitioners.
“I'm very grateful to become a part, this has certainly supported the business. Thank you, Jasa Marga,” said another UMKM practitioner, Yeni.
The event will hopefully not only help them to introduce their products but also increase their income. Their business scope had formerly been limited around Surabaya and Sidoarjo.
