A special committee from the People’s Legislative Assembly for National Entrepreneurship Draft Law has gathered input from UGM experts related to the ongoing deliberation of such Draft Law.
Deputy Head of the committee, Ichsan Firdaus, said entrepreneurship, especially in small business sector and cooperatives, was very interesting to be developed. There are, however, still problems in terms of entrepreneurial development.
“The problem was that the proportion of Indonesian business is still a few, far below the number in other countries. That is why we want to encourage the birth of entrepreneurial laws,” said Ichsan at UGM Conference Room on Tuesday (13/2).
Another problem was how to increase business competitiveness, as well as the concept of business protection, intellectual property right protection, and online business.
“We would like to gather response, input, and criticism to strengthen and enrich the National Entrepreneurship Draft Law,” he said.
Rector of UGM, Prof.Ir. Panut Mulyono, M.Eng., D.Eng., welcomed the visit made by the members of the Assembly. It was an honour for UGM to get selected by them to discuss together the Draft Law.
“Thank you for having selected UGM to discuss the issue together. I wish the input from us can be beneficial for the improvement of the Draft Law,” he said.
Also attending the event were experts from Faculty of Economics and Business and Faculty of Law who submitted their views and suggestion to the Draft National Entrepreneurship Law.
