JAKARTA - State-owned cement manufacturer PT Semen Indonesia (Persero) Tbk (SMGR) is strengthening its digital sales platforms to overcome issues that arise during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
According to Semen Indonesia Head of Digital Marketing Ameria Sumantri, the company has partnered a number of building materials stores in its marketing areas to encourage online transactions through its AksesToko.id platform.
