Bahan Bangunan Lombok

An earthquake measuring 5.8 on the Richter scale that hit Lombok in mid-2018 caused suffering to the people. Optimizing the role of state companies in the context of accelerating rehabilitation and reconstruction after the earthquake disaster was carried out quickly.

Efforts that have been made by the Ministry of SOEs and SOEs include establishing rehabilitation centers for handling trauma, building viable and earthquake resistant temporary housing, MCK, health assistance, and loans to farmers for working capital.

Of course we all hope that this BUMN assistance can ease the burden of the NTB people who are victims of the earthquake, as well as support the post-disaster handling efforts.

PT Perusahaan Perdagangan Indonesia (Persero) (PT PPI) in the middle of last year was part of the efforts to provide assistance channeled through the Ministry of BUMN disaster post in the form of building materials for the rehabilitation and reconstruction process there.

"We continue to strive to help government programs to facilitate the public regarding the availability of building materials in Lombok, by distributing thousands of spandek materials, canals, battens, threaded iron, and plain iron, to building shops in disaster affected areas at special prices," said the General Manager of the Mataram Branch PPI Manasar Sihite.

"Of course we want the price to be maintained and not soar," concluded the Senior Manager of the PPI Procurement Division, Rahman Saidi, on the same occasion.

PT PPI in 2018 emphasized the development of a trading system from upstream to downstream that was focused on improving and developing the company's business portfolio, supply chain, production, and expanding markets at home and abroad.

Gradually the direction of the company's development is seen from the company's performance in 2018 compared to the previous year. In 2018, sales reached 115% of sales in 2017.
