    TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - PT Erajaya Swasembada (ERAA) has tested the celullar production in their newest assembly plant in Pulogadung, East Jakarta. In the trial, Erajaya assembles its handset dubbed Venera 137.

    “With the full operational of this factory, we want to assist brand owners to meet government regulation on domestic content level as well as becoming an end-to-end partner to brand owners,” Chief Executive Officer Erajaya Hasan Aula said Thursday, August 13.
