JAKARTADAILY.ID – The celebration of the 76th Anniversary is a momentum to strengthen the commitment of PT Bank Negara Indonesia (Persero) Tbk or BNI as a global bank from Indonesia.

The positive performance of global banking services, as well as the strategic plan, has become the capital for this state-owned bank with the BBNI stock code to continue to improve its performance in the international arena.

Throughout January–May 2022, BNI has managed to record very good export transaction volume growth, with an annual growth of 30.62 percent. Total overseas branch loans were recorded at US$3.9 billion, an impressive 18 percent year-on-year increase.

BNI President Commissioner Agus Dermawan Wintarto Martowardojo said that since the beginning, BNI had been designed as a bank in Indonesia with an international network and global capacity.

Meanwhile, seventy-six years ago, on July 5, 1946, in the midst of the fire of the struggle for independence, the government established Bank Negara Indonesia as the state-owned circulation bank or central bank of the Republic of Indonesia.

Since 1955, BNI has operated as a commercial bank and immediately took on the role of a global capability bank by opening its first Overseas Branch in Singapore. In 1959 opened a representative office in Tokyo, Japan, and in 1963 the Hong Kong Branch of BNI was opened.

"Happy 76th anniversary of Bank Negara Indonesia. Today is also one of the historical records that we should be proud of," said Agus, in a press statement quoted from the BNI website, Sunday, June 10, 2022.

BNI President Director Royke Tumilaar said BNI had traveled to various countries to help partners develop their business to a higher level. Of course, the company will be more aggressive in helping customers find stronger growth potential through various networks as well as banking solutions.

Royke said that these seventy-six years were an opportunity to prove BNI as an agile financial institution, able to adapt when faced with new challenges, which in fact, if used properly, can be an opportunity to achieve success.

"In celebration of BNI's 76th Anniversary this year, we raised the theme 'BNI for Stronger Indonesia' which means to describe BNI's journey of working for Indonesia in supporting economic recovery after the pandemic, so that BNI can jump higher, make BNI stronger and grow sustainably," said Royke.

"To further expand our network in our efforts to capture foreign potentials, we still have plans to open more branches in the future," he said.
