The Muara Baru Modern Fish Market (PIM) in Penjaringan, North Jakarta will soon be operational. A total of 892 wet stalls and 155 dry stalls will fill the fish market.
The Indonesian Fisheries General Company (Perindo) will be the manager of this market, according to the Director General’s Decree on Strengthening the Competitiveness of Marine and Fishery Products Number 130 / KEP-DJPDSPKP / 2018. Corporate Secretary Perum Perindo Agung Pamujo said that all transactions at Muara Baru PIM would be cashless.
“The plan will be cashless transactions,” he said as reported by detikFinance, Tuesday (01/29/2019).
Several state-owned banks have offered cooperation to prepare the non-cash transaction system.
“There are Mandiri banks, BRI, BNI, including Telkom, which are specifically offering electronic payments,” Agung said.
The Muara Baru PIM will be occupied by existing traders who previously sold in the old market location.
The market operates every day from 16.00 – 24.00 WIB. Furthermore, the trader relocation process will be carried out immediately after the signing of the Cooperation Agreement between Perum Perindo and the Directorate General of PDSPKP is signed.
“Perum Perindo continues to seek optimal utilization of all stalls, both wet stalls and dry stalls. The team has conducted several socialization sessions for traders,” Agung said. (eds / dna)
