Pandu –Even though it was not an easy year, 2020 offers us various opportunities to change and adapt. During a discussion with Bisnis Indonesia, in my capacity as Commissioner of the Indonesia Stock Exchange, I can say that the Indonesian capital market is also in a stage of change.
Not only increased retail investors from 1.9 million to 3.6 million during the pandemic, but the approach taken to all stakeholders also developed following the existing digitalization trend. Likewise, with existing regulations or policies, the capital market will always look at market growth in the future.
I see that this is also part of the adoption of technology that is increasingly occurring in Indonesian society. I can say, Indonesia is one of the countries with the fastest digitalization adoption in the world.
As the increasing penetration of digital payments in the midst of Indonesian society, where the existing digital payments have been integrated with various services, including food delivery services, parking payments, shopping transactions, and maybe in the future we can find new transactions in the capital market.
I believe that the future of the Indonesian capital market will be even better because it is supported by an ecosystem of an increasingly literate society and the ease of making transactions through digitalization that is closer to our daily lives.
