Presidential Staffer Billy Mambrasar Invites Youth to Develop MSMEs
Date 4 November 2020
Special Staffer to the President Billy Mambrasar, on Tuesday (3/11), met with various youth movements in Kendari, Southeast Sulawesi Province, to invite the youth to advance in micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs).
On the occasion, Billy discussed government programs related to the development of MSMEs for the community. He invited the youth to cooperate with the local cooperative and MSME office.
The youth, Billy stated, can participate in various regular programs provided by the office, such as Beginner Entrepreneurs, Medium Entrepreneurs, and the Revolving Fund Management Agency (LPDB).
“The President’s directive is apparent. The funds, capitals, and training programs, are available. If you never get it, try to discuss it with the local government,” Billy said.
On the same occasion, Billy also invited the youth to provide transformation to their affiliated organizations. “Think about the legacy you can leave behind,” he said.
The Presidential Staffer also explained that there are two kinds of legacy, namely the visible legacy and the invisible one. “(Example) of invisible legacy is ideology. The ideology that is believed by people is universal. (Let’s) make it visible and enable tobe passed down from generation to generation,” he said, also exemplifying infrastructure as an example of visible legacy.
Billy asked the youth to identify the existing problems in their surrounding, “We should brainstorm on how to make our organizations a place that can help with providing solutions to the problems,” he stated.
Furthermore, Billy also asked the youth to collaborate with other organizations to achieve targeted goals. (SLN/UN)
