Bank Raya is a subsidiary of BRI that serves as the spearhead in BRI’s transformation to form a strong digital bank. One of BRI’s directives for Bank Raya is to grow with collaborations that are utilising the strength of state-owned enterprises or other national industries with leading capabilities in developing ecosystem-based digital platforms — which inevitably refers to the Telkom Group. After Bank Raya’s General Meeting of Shareholders, the Director of Agriculture & Financing of Bank Raya invited us to design a piloting collaboration of the ecosystem-based business developed by Telkom Indonesia that are requiring financing for the communities as the strongest elements of the ecosystems. We presented several ecosystems we are developing and some quick win plans with aligned with risk appetite of both corporates, to be expanded later into a more comprehensive transformation. The meeting was fruitful, expected to yield maximum results.

Agricultural transformation is a great technological and business opportunities with huge challenges and risks, requiring strategic-level collaboration or alliance in aggregating the capabilities, resources, while sharing the business risks that may occur.

Scala, a Japanese digital enterprise aiming to enhance the prosperity of mankind through digital technology development, has requested since last year to be the strategic partner of Telkom Indonesia in developing digital platform-based agricultural business transformation. We have spent months — days and nights — to discuss the aspects of technology development, business arrangement, ecosystem empowerment, etc for this strategic alliance preparation. Today, 1 April 2024, the representative of Scala BOD has signed the Agreement with EVP of Telkom’s Digital Business & Technology.

After the signing, we will follow up the agreement with some piloting (also in Leadership Transformation called the quick-wins) as a foundation for the collaborative transformation framework. We’ll see in the next months.

BBI in Bengkulu province was one of almost the last event carried out in 2023 — just 1 day before the harvesting session of BBI in Jakarta.

I landed in Bengkulu in a clear weather on Friday (Nov 17th). Arrived at the Mercure Hotel, I attended BRIEF — and economic forum prepared for national & global investor to leverage the economy of Bengkulu.

BBI was carried out on Saturday night (Nov 18th), presenting the Governor of Bengkulu who also celebrated the anniversary of the Bengkulu province, and some big cheeses from Jakarta.

Telkom displayed the way to support SME commerce using Metanesia — the last we would do for BBI.

There was only less than one day than to reach Jakarta to help the preparation of BBI DKI Jakarta in Kota Tua. But that’s another story.

Welcome to Tegal Mas Island in Lampung Province. Here we were attending the June edition of Gernas BBI, organised by Ministry of Industry and the Indonesian top brands, including Telkom Indonesia.

This event was attended by Coord Minister of Maritime & Investment, Mr Luhut Binsar Panjaitan, as the key speaker.

The main event here — at least for me personally — was the Coordinative Meeting (Rakor) of P3DN program, also led by Mr Luhut. Here Telkom got more roles in the nationwide P3DN program, after proving our commitment to the program in the last months. We’ll talk about it later, but not here. This is not my main blog, anyway :).

On the Garuda flight home, I got a seat just beside Mr Sudarto, the Advisor of the Minister of Finance. We spent about 30 minutes of the flight between Lampung and Jakarta on the continuation of this program; and the sustainability of the program in general.
