"We're doing this to protect citizens from the coronavirus. Every day they monitor 12 points of lokbin and loksem," she expressed, Tuesday (9/15).
Amid the pandemic, she explained, the lokbin had to operate at 3 AM to 6 PM and loksem at 10 AM to 1 PM.
"No buying and selling activity, they only serve delivery and takeaway, especially culinary traders while implementing health protocols," she stressed.
To support the small and micro business, her sub-agency was going to ensure the North Jakarta Jakpreneur Online Bazar program (BORJU) can run until now. Since last May, more than 200 coached MSMEs selling their work with a total profit by Rp 20 million in three days.
"The Micro and Small Business Permit (IUMK) relaxation program is still ongoing. More than 3,000 IUMKs have been issued this year," she said.
