JAKARTADAILY.ID – PT Bank Negara Indonesia (Persero) Tbk. or BNI (stock code: BBNI) continues to strengthen international banking performance by combining MSME Go Global and diaspora services.

BNI President Director Royke Tumilaar said BNI has a strong potential to improve international banking performance with its two strategic business segments, namely MSME Go Global and the diasporas community.

"BNI's international performance will continue to grow positively in the future. We encourage Go Global MSME collaboration as well as the diaspora, both immigrant workers, and those who have settled there. That is our target going forward," he said in a press release received by on Tuesday, July 121, 2022.

Royke explained that currently there are around eight million diasporas abroad that BNI has the potential to serve. Of these, four million diasporas are immigrant workers, while the rest have become foreign nationals.

Royke assumes that if the diaspora saves $1,000 per year, then the potential third-party funds (DPK) that will be collected by BNI is around $8 billion. In addition to empowering the diaspora, BNI also utilizes the network of the diaspora to encourage MSMEs to advance to class by presenting Indonesian MSME products abroad.

Furthermore, Royke said that as one of the state-owned banks, BNI received a mandate to develop banking services abroad. This is inseparable from the existence of a BNI branch office that has been present for the first time in Singapore since 1955.
