Sosialisasi Program ASE 3.0 oleh HIMKI di kantor kemenkop

Jakarta (ANTARA) - The Indonesian Furniture and Crafts Industry Association (HIMKI) is ready to improve the export performance of national furniture and craft products through the I am Ready to Export (ASE) Program.

HIMKI Secretary General (Sekjen), Heru Prasetyo in Jakarta, Wednesday said that the ASE Program is a form of positive collaboration between various stakeholders to equip business actors with the knowledge, experience and assistance needed to increase the competitiveness of export products.

"Through this program, it is hoped that export performance will increase, both in terms of value and quality of goods exported," he said in a written statement.

The stakeholders of the ASE Program include the Ministry of Trade (Kemendag), Ministry of Industry (Kemenperin), Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy (Kemenparekraf), HIMKI and the National Crafts Council (Dekranas).

The I'm Ready to Export program, he continued, includes workshops, webinars, mentoring, discussions and exhibitions. Participants are required to involve micro business actors outside Java and Bali as supplier partners or foster micro partners to create a multiplier effect and support each other in encouraging exports.

Meanwhile, the trainers and assistants come from the stakeholders involved so that business actors have the knowledge, insight and readiness to enter the export market.

"It is hoped that with the I'm Ready to Export Program, especially for SMEs in decorative products

houses and furniture, can strengthen Indonesia's capacity in international trade

so that it can increase national exports," he said.

Previously, the HIMKI management and representatives of the Ministry of Trade met

Assistant Deputy for Partnerships and Market Expansion of the Ministry of Cooperatives and SMEs to invite the Ministry of Cooperatives and Human Resources to participate in the success of the ASE Program.

Director of Export Development of Creative Services and Products at the Ministry of Trade, Miftah Farid said

The stakeholders of the Aku Ready to Export 2.0 (ASE 2.0) program give high appreciation to the success of the program so that this program must be continued, namely with the ASE 3.0 Program.

The ASE 1.0 and 2.0 programs are a collaboration of 3 Ministries, namely the Ministry of Trade, the Ministry of Industry and the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy plus Dekranas and HIMKI. "For ASE 3.0 we invite the Ministry of Cooperatives and SMEs to collaborate in the program

that," he said.

The Ministry of Cooperatives and SMEs, he added, welcomed it and would participate in the program

and will open permanent showrooms in hub countries such as Singapore.
