Indonesia Exports Syringes Needed by UNICEF and Ukraine

Syringes

A total of 1.2 billion disposable syringes from Indonesia have been exported for procurement until 2022. It is known that the syringe was ordered by UNICEF and the Ukrainian Ministry of Health.

Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan, Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs and Investment said that this step is something positive in the midst of the government’s efforts to increase the use of domestic production and encourage exports of finished products.

“From local to global. This is the government’s dream, like many government programs as we can domestically,”

HE SAID IN A WRITTEN STATEMENT, FRIDAY (AUGUST 27, 2021).

With the export of one of these medical needs, Luhut hopes that the import figure in the medical sector will slowly decline.

“The government has to spend quite a lot of health spending per year and most of the imports, but the President has given us orders for all domestic products. So as much as possible during this pandemic must be made domestically,” HE SAID.

According to him, increasing the use and export of domestic products has an impact on saving foreign exchange which also has an effect on the national economy.
