500 Curated MSMEs Go Global at the Virtual UMKM EXPO(RT) BRIlianpreneur 2021

Following the successful event for two years in a row, Bank Rakyat Indonesia 
(BRI) conducts the virtual UMKM EXPO(RT) BRIlianpreneur 2021, from 9-16 
December 2021, involving 500 curated MSMEs to exhibit their products virtually.

Sunarso, President Director of BRI said, "This year, we are focusing on the 
business matching session, targeting over 105 buyers from 30 countries. With 
this, the MSMEs can expand their market reach to an international level and win 
the global competition."

UMKM EXPO(RT) BRIlianpreneur 2021 showcases Indonesia's top-quality export 
products across sectors that are rich with Indonesian heritage and cultures. 
They include food and beverages (F&B), fashion, accessories and beauty, and 
home décor and craft. These sectors, particularly F&B and fashion, are expected 
to make a positive contribution towards Indonesia's export value, which in 
August 2021 reached up to US$ 20,36 Billion or a 21,75% increase compared to 
July 2021, according to Central Bureau Statistic([1]. 

This year, the UMKM EXPO(RT) BRIlianpreneur 2021 will be fully online with the 
Business Matching session conducted from 13-15 December 2021. After 
successfully scoring 74 contracts from 24 countries amounting to US$ 57,5 
Million last year, BRI aims to target even further this year with an estimated 
potential deal of US$ 65 Million. 

This goal is achievable with the current curated participants, including CV 
Pelangi Nusantara (Pelanusa), a home industry that was initially started as a 
woman development community in 2012. Since then, Pelanusa has exported their 
high-quality products abroad, such as to Japan, Malaysia, and Vietnam. 

"BRIlianpreneur has allowed us to empower our network of over 20 groups of 
prominent artisans across the country by transforming our mindset to be more 
digital-savvy. Through our waste fabric-based crafts such as home decorations, 
we want to preserve the local heritage of Indonesia," said Endahing Noor 
Suryanti, owner of Pelanusa. 

Another participant is Mutiara Handicraft, an SME business built to empower the 
disabled community. They produce patchwork and waste-based crafts, such as 
doormat and blankets, with competitive prices and colorful designs.

The program is also featuring inspiring talk shows from experts and prominent 
speakers; virtual expo; 3D expo; virtual trip; DIY workshop; and MSMEs Awards. 

To join the business matching, potential buyers can now register online and
