INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - SOE Minister Rini M Soemarno targets that in 2018, there will be no companies suffering losses, from the number of state-owned enterprises that have deficit during 2017 as many as 12 companies.

"Many ways, but the main thing is synergy, for example, BUMN in the same sector, procurement logistics can be coordinated so that more efficient," she said.
In addition, SOE synergy is also directed to mutual use of services or production produced by several companies.
She highlighted several state-owned enterprises that are still in financial pressure, PT Garuda Indonesia, which needs to improve in order to better operating performance.
Especially for Garuda, the loss is due more to the company being trapped in tariff wars and inefficient international flight routes.
While Krakatau Steel losses swell due to, among others, the existence of steel dumping from China.
