Jakarta: President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) has urged business players not to give up amid difficult circumstances following a drop in business turnover in the throes of the covid-19 crisis.
 
“The most important thing is not to give up. It’s fine to have a small profit, but the businesses must keep running. Because at some point, this pandemic will end and the situation will return to normal,” the President said during the handover of working capital assistance (BMK) at the Central Courtyard of the Merdeka Palace in Jakarta on Wednesday, as quoted by the Cabinet Secretariat's website.
