It’s already starting to look a lot of credit requests for this year
Jakarta – President Director of PT Bank Negara Indonesia (Persero) Tbk or BNI Royke Tumilaar is optimistic that the company’s credit will grow stronger after Eid al-Fitr or in the second quarter of 2022.
“Indeed, there have been a lot of credit requests for this year,” said Royke at the Public Expose for the first quarter of 2022 in Jakarta, Tuesday.
Therefore, BNI still will not revise the credit growth target for 2022 which is in the range of seven percent to 10 percent.
In the first quarter of 2021, BNI’s credit distribution grew by 5.8 percent compared to the same period the previous year (year-on-year/yoy).
He said credit growth occurred in line with the strengthening of commodity prices and economic recovery, so that demand in the infrastructure, electricity and gas, logistics, warehousing, information and digital sectors was very high.
In addition, the demand for credit is also high in the downstream sector, to the commodity downstream subsystem.
“Development smelter It will be lively and big because the potential of the current government is starting to prohibit the export of unfinished goods,” said Royke.
Therefore, he hopes that the entire process will take place soon and become a source of growth, especially in the private sector in the future.
Thus, he feels there is no need to change the credit growth target this year.
However, this will also see the situation developing if in the second quarter of 2022 there is a fairly high credit growth.
“Only, if this happens later, we will try to adjust it if we feel it is necessary in the middle of the year. But, so far, it is enough with the current growth range with a midpoint of maybe eight or nine percent,” he asserted.
