Batara Sianturi, CEO, Citi Indonesia

Poised for growth

4 February 2020

In an interview with Global Platform, Batara Sianturi, CEO of Citi Indonesia, discusses how Indonesia’s banking sector is adapting to the digital economy and the proliferation of financial technology (fintech). The country’s banks are poised to build off of strong performance in the next, technology-driven stage. Small and medium-sized enterprises are set to play a central role in this next phase, propelled by a supportive entrepreneurial ecosystem. 


Indonesia continues to be an attractive destination for foreign direct investment. Growth has been quite significant, and we see that this trend will continue in the future. 

The digital economy

We are very excited about the digital economy in Indonesia. Indonesia's digital economy will grow to $133bn by 2025. That is huge growth, and the fastest in ASEAN.
