Bukalapak has expanded its business to a number of neighboring countries – Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Brunei Darussalam – through its global brand BukaGlobal.
Rahmat Fitra Wibowo, Bukalapak corporate communications supervisor, said with BukaGlobal, Bukalapak aimed to connect 4 million traders in Indonesia with customers in those countries.
“This expansion is to reaffirm Bukalapak’s mission to support the growth of small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in Indonesia,” Rahmat said in a press statement received on Monday.
Fajrin Rasyid, Bukalapak cofounder and president, introduced BukaGlobal to customers in Malaysia recently. He was welcomed by the economic counselor at the Indonesian Embassy to Malaysia, Harry Rusmana Irawan.
Rahmat said the operation of BukaGlobal in Malaysia was expected to boost the sales of products of Indonesian SMEs.
Since May 20, he said, customers could order products from BukaGlobal with delivery times of between six and 11 days. (bbn)
