TRIBUNBATAM.id - The condition of Corona virus spread in various countries has greatly impacted the economic downturn in Batam City.

Chairman of Indonesian Employers' Association (Apindo) Batam, Rafki Rasyid is worried if Corona virus is prolonged it will be able to affect the economy of Batam.

"Although the impact on economy has not been felt so far but if it continues in the next few months the impact on economy will begin to be felt," Rafki told TRIBUNBATAM.id, Friday (2/14/2020).

Starting from the obstacle of importing raw materials originating from China.

Then it is followed by decrease in demand from global markets due to people who are holding back their consumption caused by Corona virus.

"If this happens, then Batam which relies on its economy for import and export activities will be affected," he said.
