Head of the Sub-Directorate of Public Relations and Counseling, Hatta Wardhana said that in addition to exploring the potential of domestic industry, this action is also part of efforts to recover the national economy.
Hatta revealed the consistent efforts of Customs and Excise in helping domestic business actors market their products abroad.
Several Customs offices, including Sangatta Customs, Labuan Bajo Customs, and Banjarmasin Customs, have again carried out export assistance for MSME owners.
"This is in line with part of the national economic recovery effort that seeks to encourage exports and empower MSMEs to become drivers of the national economy," said Hatta in a press statement published there, Tuesday, May 24, 2022.
Hendra, the coordinator of the Pama Banua Etam Business Development Institute for the Sangatta region, revealed that his agency emphasizes MSMEs to make products that are needed by buyers so that there will be buyers.
In the East Nusa Tenggara region, Labuan Bajo Customs and Excise seeks to attract business actors there to carry out exports, one of which is CV Manggarai Flores Coffee. The CV has superior products in the form of coffee in the form of Arabica and Robusta green beans.

"In the assistance we provide, we are also trying to change the mindset of MSME players so that they are not only profit-oriented but must be able to make breakthroughs through export activities."
