The outbreak of Covid-19 which began to touch up to the homeland does not impede the agenda of the Jogja International Furniture and Craft Fair Indonesia (JIFFINA) 2020 to keep rolling at the Jogja Expo Center (JEC).

JIFFINA 2020 Committee Chair Endro Wardoyo said, 300 top furniture companies took part in routine activities that had entered the fifth year.

According to him, the entire company has a flashy reputation in the world of exporters.

Moreover, a number of similar events in a number of countries, such as China, Vietnam, and Malaysia, had to be canceled.

"In the technical meeting we discussed together. But, after all the companies had made very thorough preparations. Until finally it was decided to be held," he said, in a press conference at JEC, Bantul, Thursday (03/12/2020).
