Survey on Local SMEs of Automotive Components
From 27 October, I have stayed in Jakarta. I have joined the study team on local SMEs of automotive components in Indonesia, mainly in Jakarta Metropolitan Area (Jabotadebek). Everyday, we visit and interview at those local SMEs to get information for making recommendation report to Indonesian and Japanese governments.
We will visit 10 local SMEs and conduct Focused Group Discussion with 10 local SMEs during these two weeks until 6 November 2014.
I must continue to concentrate my attention as an interpreter in interviews, navigator to search for the location of SMEs (often difficult to get the SME’s address in the map), and guide to search for good place to have lunch.
I hope our survey will give some useful information to build appropriate strategies for the development of local SMEs related to the development of automotive industry in Indonesia.
