Now is the time to champion MSMEs – Government, financial institutions, private companies, and other industry stakeholders have it within their power to drive effective intervention.
The goal is not to unseat the tech giants or even to defend market share. It’s to acquire the tools and the mindset you need to pursue opportunities in the digital age.
Indonesia’s economic expansion is creating a strong market for FMCGs. To capture the opportunity, manufacturers must understand the country’s most influential demographic segments: their shopping habits, brand relationships, and preferred channels.
Many of Indonesia’s middle-class and affluent consumers will purchase in certain categories of durable goods, creating a rare opportunity for manufacturers to establish lasting brand relationships with a new generation of consumers.
The coming decade represents a major opportunity for financial services companies, as Indonesia’s growing economy and the rising incomes of its citizens produce a new generation of savers and investors.
