DAVOS – At the World Economic Forum (WEF) held this week, Sunarso, the Director of Bank Rakyat Indonesia (IDX: BBRI), highlighted the bank’s initiatives aimed at fostering inclusive economic growth and expanding employment opportunities in Indonesia.
Sunarso discussed the challenges Indonesia faces, such as stagnant economic growth and persistent poverty, and emphasized the importance of establishing engines for inclusive economic growth. He pointed out that BRI, as a state-owned enterprise, is not only focused on profitability but also on reinvesting to stimulate economic development and social impact.
