The third P3DN Business Matching was carried out at JCC Senayan, Jakarta, 30-31 May 2022. The lead of this program is the Ministry of Public Works and Housing, led by the General Secretary, Mr Mohammad Zainal Fatah. He was my mentor in 1990s, but unfortunately we were very busy during this event so we could not talk to each other.
Telkom got involved not only as a potential buyer (as a SOE), but also as a provider to offer import-substitution products to Ministries, Institutions, Local Govts, and other SOEs. Besides the business negotiation, we also set a booth displaying digital products, services, and solutions for government & communities.
We also reported Telkom’s progress to all the P3DN programs (platform integration, MSME build up, MSME listing to the e-Catalog, SOE domestic product purchasing leverage, etc) to Mr Odo Manuhutu, the Deputy of Tourism & Creative Economy Coordination, Kemkomarves. Kemkomarves is the coordinator of all the BBI & P3DN program; reporting directly to the President of Indonesia.
