Even though the Covid-19 pandemic has hit the city of Bandung for more than two years, the Bandung City Government (Pemkot) and regional policy makers continue to strive to accelerate economic recovery. This can be seen from the report from the Antapani Kidul Village regarding the number of MSME actors in Antapani Kidul which continues to increase.

In 2021, initially there were 138 MSME actors, this will increase to 915 MSMEs in 2022.

Through this effort, Antapani Kidul succeeded in representing the city of Bandung and was included in the top three tough urban villages that were contested at the West Java (Jabar) level.

To evaluate the results of the report, the West Java 2022 Field Verification Team conducted a direct inspection of the Antapani Kidul Village on Thursday, June 23, 2022.

On this occasion, the Head of the West Java 2022 Field Verification Team, Lisa Avianty said, there are three aspects that will be assessed to win the West Java Tangguh Village Competition.

"There are aspects of government, territory, and society.
This community has several elements, such as PKK, posyandu, poskamling, patrols, and Bhabinkamtibmas," explained Lisa.

He said, with the dense population in Antapani Kidul, it could be a potential to accelerate the economy in this village.

"We want to see if this crowded place can provide a good domino effect for the community. Yesterday from the results of the explanation from the head of the Antapani Kidul village, we really appreciate and hope this process can be a lesson for other urban villages," he said.

Responding to this, the Mayor of Bandung, Yana Mulyana, who was also present at this activity, hoped that Antapani Kidul could become one of the areas that play a role in economic recovery in the city of Bandung.

"Last year our potential loss was more than Rp. 1 trillion. This year, West Java Province targets economic growth of 5 percent. Hopefully, Bandung City can grow at 5.5 percent," he said.

"Hopefully what we are doing is on track in providing the best service for the community," Yana hoped.

In the same place, the Head of Antapani Kidul Village, Dedi Juardi, said that his party together with the residents had carried out several innovation programs to help the community become more empowered.

One of them is through the Family Income Improvement Unit Cooperative (UP2K) whose finances so far have reached Rp51 million.

"This cooperative is our effort to help the community against moneylenders. We also help them produce their own MSME products, some have peanut brittle, risoles, and chicken noodle businesses. So people are more empowered and independent without being entangled with moneylenders again," said Dedi.

In addition, the more highlighted point in Antapani Kidul is being active in services through e-government (e-govt) applications. Through this application, the regional government has made it easier for community services to access needs.

"We also have e-yaris, an application that has been used by the community for consulting services regarding heirs," he added.

The people of Antapani Kidul also take advantage of the potential of their land to become Buruan Sae. Spread 10 Hurry Sae in 19 RW Antapani Kidul.

They also deal with Covid-19 and stunting, one of which is the food security program through the Food Barns and the Rice Sharing Movement (Gebber).

"The number of stunting children in Antapani Kidul has decreased from the previous 25 cases in 2021, to 15 cases in 2022. Hopefully in the future we can continue to reduce the stunting rate in the city of Bandung," he said. (din)**
