The Ministry of Industry (Kemenperin) continues to coordinate with related parties, including the industrial sector to provide support in meeting the needs of medical oxygen gas for handling Covid-19 patients.

This is in accordance with the determination to mobilize all the capabilities of the domestic industry to meet the increasing demand for national oxygen gas.

“The industrial sector can make a big contribution in dealing with Covid-19 in the current situation. We express our deepest appreciation and appreciation to the industrial company PT. Indo-Rama Synthetics Tbk and PT. Indorama Ventures Indonesia is willing to donate oxygen concentrator equipment," said Minister of Industry (Menperin) Agus Gumiwang Kartasasmita.

Based on data from the Ministry of Health, as of July 6, 2021, the need for medical oxygen has increased to 2,333 tons per day, while the national capacity is at 1,578 tons per day.

This means that there is a deficit of around 575 tons per day.

“We are tasked with finding additional oxygen sources, both from increasing production capacity and imports. Currently, we have secured the supply of around 922 tons of oxygen per day, both imported and local," explained the Minister of Industry.

He explained, the Ministry of Industry continues to make various proactive efforts by collaborating and coordinating with relevant ministries/agencies, local governments, industrial associations and industrial companies to help meet the need for oxygen gas for handling Covid-19 patients in a number of areas.

The assistance given today is in the form of 400 units of oxygen concentrator from PT. Indo-Rama Synthetics Tbk and 200 units from PT. Indorama Ventures Indonesia.

The assistance was handed over by the President Director of PT. Indorama Ventures Indonesia, Saurabh Mishra symbolically and virtually to the Government of Indonesia.

Oxygen concentrator is a tool that can help non-ICU Covid-19 patients.

The device is considered efficient in handling patients because it can produce oxygen and distribute it directly to Covid-19 patients at the treatment location.

“We are very grateful for this assistance, especially to Mr. Sri Prakash Lohia, Chairman of the Indorama Group. This oxygen concentrator assistance is very meaningful because it can reduce the need for oxygen cylinders,” said the Minister of Industry.

Assistance in providing and distributing oxygen for medical purposes is the industrial sector's response to the Instruction of the Minister of Industry Number 1 of 2021 concerning Oxygen Products as Industrial Strategic Commodities in the Covid-19 Period.

Through these instructions, domestic industries are expected to be able to meet the oxygen needs of the community, especially in health facilities.

The head of the Aceh Culture and Tourism Office (Disbudpar) stated that India is ready to provide support for the development of the fashion (clothing) industry in Aceh, because the country has a strong historical relationship with Aceh.
