Coordination Meeting with BNN

Digitalization, including the change in the method of buying and selling transactions from offline to online, has brought various positive impacts on various social and economic sectors. However, there needs to be strict supervision regarding anything that can be transacted online. The reason is that the ease of transacting online can be used by irresponsible people to sell prohibited goods, such as narcotics.

To anticipate this, the National Narcotics Agency of the Republic of Indonesia through the Directorate of Psychopotropics and the Deputy Precursor for the Eradication of BNN held a Coordination Meeting with the theme "Anticipating the Widespread Circulation of Narcotics, Narcotics Precursors, Psychotropics and Dangerous Drugs Traded Through Online Stores (E-Commerce & Marketplace) ”, at the Best Western Premiere Hotel, East Jakarta on Wednesday 18 May 2022.

Participants in this activity came from various related work units within the BNN, as well as leaders and representatives from the Marketplace, including Tokopedia, Shopee Indonesia, Bukalapak, Lazada, Blibli, and JD.ID.
