MSME, the Savior

Covid-19 has infected people, regardless of status or economic level, and indiscriminately. Developed countries are made helpless, let alone developing countries, and the poor.

Local MSMEs have developed superior products from the NTB administration’s economic assistance for earthquake-affected communities. Today, MSMEs in Lombok have said they have been encouraged by the transition to the “new normal” phase of the Covid-19 mitigation measures.

The Covid-19 pandemic has caused economic recession in almost all countries.

Only a few countries have escaped the recession, namely China, Vietnam and Taiwan. China and Vietnam, which usually grow 6-7 percent, are estimated to only grow one-fourth of their capacity, ranging 1.5-2.0 percent in 2020. Their success is attributed to controlling Covid-19 quickly, supported by a high level of discipline from the government and their people.
