The webinar, which was attended by 30,000 PNM Mekaar customers from Sulawesi, Central Java, DIY, East Java, NTB, NTT, and Bali, aims to encourage and improve the quality of MSME products to upgrade their level and become stronger. The event presented a number of speakers, one of which was the Minister of SOEs (BUMN), Erick Thohir, who emphasized the importance of women's role and their ceaseless learning to develop themselves.
Meanwhile, PNM Independent Commissioner, Veronica Colondam, said that education for PNM Mekaar customers and AO is very important because it can support the achievement of SDGs goals in Indonesia. As one of the ultra-micro holdings formed by the government to empower MSMEs, PNM is committed to improving the capabilities and quality of its customers so they can grow and move forwards. "I hope that (MSMEs) will always implement the SDGs knowledge and continue to improve their efforts so that they can upgrade their level," said Veronica.
