Budiawan, Deputy Commissioner for Supervision of Financing Institutions and Other Financial Services Institutions, said: “OJK aims to achieve a 90% financial inclusion index in Indonesia, and building a digital financial inclusion ecosystem is the most effective way to do that. We are pleased to see leading technology companies like Huawei participating in digital finance innovation in Indonesia.”

“A crucial element of a financial institution’s mitigation of risk from a cloud provider is a comprehensive risk management and oversight program.

Fortunately, BNC has a reliable partner, Huawei Cloud, who makes sure that everything happens smoothly.”
