Published on 23 February 2017

For the purpose to acquire in-depth knowledge within consumer goods and manufacturing sector, EuroCham recently visited PT HM Sampoerna’s facilities in Surabaya and Sukorejo. The visit, organized on 20-21 January 2017, was the platform to obtain information regarding the impact that Sampoerna has given to the community, particularly in East Java. Such impact is evident from Sampoerna's entrepreneurship center facilities, which empower the surrounding community to conduct their own business. The entrepreneurship was one of Sampoerna’s corporate social responsibility pillars—three others including women empowerment, education, as well as search and rescue.
