BBI Bengkulu

BBI in Bengkulu province was one of almost the last event carried out in 2023 — just 1 day before the harvesting session of BBI in Jakarta.

I landed in Bengkulu in a clear weather on Friday (Nov 17th). Arrived at the Mercure Hotel, I attended BRIEF — and economic forum prepared for national & global investor to leverage the economy of Bengkulu.

BBI was carried out on Saturday night (Nov 18th), presenting the Governor of Bengkulu who also celebrated the anniversary of the Bengkulu province, and some big cheeses from Jakarta.

Telkom displayed the way to support SME commerce using Metanesia — the last we would do for BBI.

There was only less than one day than to reach Jakarta to help the preparation of BBI DKI Jakarta in Kota Tua. But that’s another story.

BBI Lampung

Welcome to Tegal Mas Island in Lampung Province. Here we were attending the June edition of Gernas BBI, organised by Ministry of Industry and the Indonesian top brands, including Telkom Indonesia.

This event was attended by Coord Minister of Maritime & Investment, Mr Luhut Binsar Panjaitan, as the key speaker.

The main event here — at least for me personally — was the Coordinative Meeting (Rakor) of P3DN program, also led by Mr Luhut. Here Telkom got more roles in the nationwide P3DN program, after proving our commitment to the program in the last months. We’ll talk about it later, but not here. This is not my main blog, anyway :).

On the Garuda flight home, I got a seat just beside Mr Sudarto, the Advisor of the Minister of Finance. We spent about 30 minutes of the flight between Lampung and Jakarta on the continuation of this program; and the sustainability of the program in general.

P3DN Business Matching #3

The New Avenger, May 2022 Edition

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.

Mr Soendojoadi presented Telkom’s significant & critical roles in P3DN program

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.

Telkom’s Booth

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.

BBI Bukittinggi

Bukittinggi is a small historical and cultural city in West Sumatra province. It was once appointed as the provisional capital of Indonesia when the criminal armed forces of the Netherlands occupied Yogyakarta (i.e. also the provisional capital of Indonesia). The elegant city is located amidst Bukit Barisan mountain, just between Mt Marapi dan Mt Singgalang — giving it a perfect weather, at least for me.

Bukittinggi hosted BBI this month, organised by OJK. It was a special BBI event, since it was attended by the Vice President of Indonesia, and it hosted the launch of the awaited BBI Virtual Expo, designed and provided by Telkom.

The event was carried out at the courtyard of Jam Gadang — the famous clock tower of Bukittinggi.
