In the event, 47 property industries and related sub-sectors received the Urbancity Indonesia Banking & Real Estate Awards.
The 47 recipients of the award are divided into 12 categories, including Listed and Non-listed Companies. Then, the category of Independent City Areas, Landed Houses, Superblock Projects, Building Materials, Consulting Companies and the Category of Financing Institutions (Banks & Non-Banks), Government Institutions and Associations/Organizations as well as the category of Figures/Personals who contribute greatly to the development of the property industry in Indonesia.
Assistant Deputy for Entrepreneurial Financing of the Ministry of Cooperatives and SMEs, Edhi Kusdiyarwoko said that collaboration between industries is one way out to avoid a global crisis where all countries are affected, including Indonesia.
He revealed that the contribution of MSMEs was recorded at around 61 percent of the national GDP and absorbed 97 percent of the total workforce. During times of crisis, MSMEs even become buffers, are resilient, and can recover well. For this reason, his party invites the property industry to partner with SMEs.
CEO of PT Opatan Komunika Sejahtera, which is also the parent company of Urbancity.id, Mukhtar Wijaya said, in accordance with the theme of this year's Urbancity Awards, his party wants to invite all related industries to come together and collaborate to make the property become the industry a trigger for Indonesia's economic growth after the COVID-19 pandemic.
"We want this event as an effort to strengthen the collaboration that has been established, the condition of the property industry is currently improving. We hope that, through the offering of the 2022 Urbancity awards, it will spur the property industry and related sectors to better meet the post-pandemic future," said Mukhtar.
Mukhtar emphasized that collaboration is very necessary to maintain the momentum of the revival of the property industry in the country after the Covid-19 pandemic. This is because the current increase in fuel prices and the global crisis is expected to have an impact on the property industry.
"At the very least, the possible impact will be an increase in land prices and an increase in material prices. Through the collaboration of the property industry and related sectors, we hope to be able to overcome these challenges," he said.
The property industry, continued Mukhtar, has 174 sub-sectors in which almost all lines are involved, including SMEs. According to him, property industry activities in Indonesia have a large multiplier effect on other industrial activities.
