Our target is this purpose must be realized by December this year
Jakarta (ANTARA) - The Jakarta administration is planning to transform parks near West Jakarta's Grogol bus terminal to build kiosks for local micro, small, and medium enterprises under the Jakpreneur program.

"The region (representatives) proposed three kiosk points for the Grogol Petamburan sub-district. One of them is near the terminal," head of SMEs at the SME, Cooperatives, and Trade Industry Office (PPKUKM), Adhitya Pratama Yudha, said here on Thursday.

The proposed areas include two kiosk points near Grogol Terminal — one in front of Terminal 2 and a park on Dokter Susilo Street, he informed.

The third area is located at Taman Tugu Reformasi (Reformation Monument Park) on Kyai Tapa Street, Grogol Petamburan sub-district, he added.

The two locations have been proposed given the high number of residents who have the potential to become MSME consumers or buyers, Yudha said.

"So, residents' needs in the region can be met by Jakpreneurs, the expectations are like that," he added.

The proposal will be discussed by officials at the Provincial Office, he said. They will consider the feasibility of the sites and other matters before finally building the kiosks, he added.

However, Yudha said that he could not confirm how many Jakprenuer MSME kiosks will be built in the area. "(About how many kiosks) will be discussed to determine how many stalls will stand," he remarked.

He also could not provide details on how many MSME Jakprenuer players are expected to use the kiosks.

However, Yudha assured that the discussion would be strengthened so that kiosks can be built in these areas and used by business players.

"Our target is this purpose must be realized by December this year," he said.

The Jakarta administration's Jakpreneur Program is aimed at bolstering the ecosystem of micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) so they can rise and grow again amid the pandemic, he added.
