Minister Bintang Puspayoga said the government is giving full attention to women-led SMEs, especially during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, where there are more challenges for business to survive.
“The government is paying attention to SMEs amid pandemic – not only to survive, but also to further develop and become stronger,” Puspayoga said virtually during a Women 20 (W20) event on Tuesday, March 8, as reported by Antara.
According to her, as mandated by President Joko Widodo, the Ministry of Women Empowerment and Child Protection (MOWECP) is committed to help developing SMEs initiated by Indonesia’s female entrepreneurs.
