BNI's alignment with MSMEs was appreciated by the Minister of Cooperatives and SMEs, Teten Masduki, on June 24, 2022, when BNI received the MSME Empowerment Program Award from the Merdeka Award 2022.

“I know BNI is committed to providing financing in the productive sector. BNI's steps must be followed by other banks," said Teten.

For this appreciation, BNI's MSME Business Director Muhammad Iqbal said, MSME empowerment is a journey that contains various continuous and sustainable efforts.

With a mandate as a global bank from Indonesia, BNI carries out a program to develop the MSME segment to penetrate the export market. This means that BNI is expected to increase the capacity and capability of MSME players to continue to produce MSME champions who have the ability to compete in the global market.

BNI runs various other programs with related institutions and ministries, which are part of the BNI Xpora umbrella program that combines export and diaspora ecosystems.

"We hope that more MSME players will run their export business effectively, while also being able to make improvements in terms of management, production, promotion, and marketing. Hopefully, this step can increase the export contribution of MSME players from currently in the range of 14 percent to 17 percent in 2024," he said.
