West Java to build design centre for small enterprises

The regional government in West Java will build a design center for small- and medium-size enterprises (IKM). Head of the training program at the Industry and Trade Department for West Java, Hani Yuhani, Bandung, Thursday (31/7), said the first phase of the design center will cover three industries. They are the shoe industry in Cibaduyut, Bandung; the rattan-based furniture industry in Cirebon; and the ceramic industry in Plered, Purwakarta. Hani explained the design center will be adapted from the unit of technical service at the Industry and Trade department. The unit has stopped operating since regional autonomy applied. “While the unit is actually a place for people to gain information, it connects the Industry and Trade Department with the community,” she said.
