Indonesia’s growing economy and evolving technology attracts investors
In this Global Platform video, Jahja Setiaatmadja, president director of Bank Central Asia, talks about the importance of digital technology, such as online banking and digitalised transactions, in adapting to the rising use of fintech in the market. Indonesia’s target growth rate is set to exceed the global average, at 5.3% for 2020. This, along with an inflation rate of only 3% and a stabilised exchange rate, will help attract investors in the coming years. Furthermore, the growth of retail, fashion, food and tourism infrastructure is expected to attract rising rates of foreign investment moving forward.
