Assalamu’alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarokatuh

In the era of globalization and starting the 2016 free market of the ASEAN Economic Community (MEA) requires the readiness of all sectors to face it in order to have a high competitiveness to the ASEAN group countries and around the world. In the MEA there is an inward flow of goods, services, skilled labor, and working capital flows freely. Similarly, companies in Indonesia both large and small are also required to have a high competitiveness of similar products.

To achieve that then the effort to develop the value of the company should not at all stop and even must progressively faster, in line with the changes that occur.

Companies that want to win the competition are required to continue to strive to produce products - oriented products to meet the needs and interests of customers.

Utilization of both domestic and global networks is a further prerequisite for the company to have wider space in developing its business. Business strategy and corporate work plan and human resource capability should also be able to accommodate the changes that run very quickly.

PT Perusahaan Perdagangan Indonesia (Persero), supported by 32 branches and thousands of outlets spread across Indonesia and decades of experience in running general trading both export and import as well as various distribution patterns, has a great opportunity to play a role in the international trade arena.

Brothers and sisters,

PT Perusahaan Perdagangan Indonesia (Persero) as one of Indonesia's trade SOEs has a double duty that besides continuously improve the value of the company, also must be able to maximally play in building the welfare of the community, through the trading of various goods and commodities from upstream to downstream.

With the support of owned infrastructure and developed IT systems, and openness to cooperate with various parties both BUMN and Private, then the big role of PT PPI (Persero) in domestic and global trade should not be long to be achieved.

May Allah Almighty, Almighty God, always guide us to always take a straight path towards the ideals that are expected.
