PT Bank Negara Indonesia (Persero) Tbk or BNI invites investors to witness the success of BNI’s channeled financing on strategic infrastructure projects in Indonesia, especially toll road projects on Java.
In addition to witnessing the success of financing, investors and stakeholders also received an explanation of the positive impact of the construction of infrastructure projects on improving the business quality of business people in the event titled BNI Investor Visit of TransJava.
“We hope that the purpose of organizing the BNI Investor Visit of TransJava event will provide insight to investors and stakeholders regarding the development of infrastructure in Indonesia, one of which is the construction of the Trans Java Toll Road which has been fully operational since the end of December 2018,” said Treasury and International Director BNI Rico Rizal Budidarmo in his statement on Thursday (02/14/2019).
In addition to the discussions held at the BNI TransJava Stakeholder Roundtable Discussion in Semarang on Thursday (2/14), investors were also invited to visit one of the business actors who are also BNI debtors who were positively affected by the existence of infrastructure projects, to attend the Warehouse Tour.
The event was deliberately designed not only with seminars but also invited investors to visit companies that were projected to have a positive impact on infrastructure development. In addition, they also directly observed a portion of the Trans-Java toll road in the Semarang-Surabaya section.
“It is our hope that through this activity investors and stakeholders can understand economic developments in sub-urban cities outside the capital city of Jakarta, and witness BNI’s progress in encouraging local economic growth as a result of the multiplier effect of infrastructure development,” Rico said.
In addition to investors, present at the event were representatives of BUMN Karya, up to the Ministry of Public Works and Public Housing.
BNI actively participated in supporting infrastructure development, which until the end of 2018 had channeled infrastructure loans of Rp 110.604 trillion, or grew by 11.1% year on year (yoy).
Based on the total infrastructure loans, financing for toll road projects and construction is the largest contributor, namely 34% of total financing. Followed by financing for power plants, oil and gas, transportation and telecommunications, each with a composition of 23%, 17%, 15%, and 11%. (prf / fdl)
