The Director General of National Export Development (PEN) of the Ministry of Trade Didi Sumedi said this collaboration program was called “Acceleration of Small and Medium Enterprises/Small Industries and Medium Industries Ready to Export”, or abbreviated as “I am Ready to Export”.

“This is through intensive coaching so that we can enter the United States, Canada, Australia, South Africa and other international markets,” said Didi as quoted from his statement, Tuesday, October 12, 2021.

Didi explained, the ‘I’m Ready to Export’ program is intended for SMEs and IKM to help develop a marketing plan that considers the target market, so that business actors get foreign buyers.  Perabot Unik
