Various strategies have been prepared to boost the Company's performance throughout 2021, starting from increasing synergies within the PT ABM Investama Tbk (ABM) Group, increasing operational volume and performance, conducting ongoing cost reviews, to exploring opportunities to increase coal reserves.
