Bank Indonesia broadens use of Quick Response Code Indonesian Standard (QRIS) for the 2021 Indonesian Creative Work campaign, encompassing the National Movement of Proud of Made-in Indonesia Product (Gernas BBI) and Proud to Travel in Indonesia.

“We also continue to improve the features in QRIS without face-to-face, including for fund withdrawals, deposits, and transfers,” Governor of Bank Indonesia (BI) Perry Warjiyo stated at the virtual opening of the Lombok exoticism Indonesian Creative Work Campaign in Jakarta, Wednesday.

According to Warjiyo, BI had involved 46 offices, banks, fintech financing system associations, and marketplaces to continue the QRIS movement.

Furthermore, to ensure the success of the KKI campaign, which is part of Gernas BBI and Proud to Travel in Indonesia, BI has intensified synergy toward achieving exoticism in Lombok.

Warjiyo noted that Lombok not only held tourism potential, but the creative and innovative products of its MSME could also become superior products.

The central bank additionally offers an e-catalog as a forum to showcase products of BI-assisted MSMEs and regional government-assisted MSMEs.

“Shopping for MSME products is so easy, with the presence of a QRIS. There is an e-catalog, just touch it,” he expounded.

Moreover, BI continues to synergize with various ministries to five BI foreign representative offices for developing and boosting the marketing of MSME products.

The Lombok exoticism Indonesian Creative Work Campaign will take place on March 3-31, 2021.

People can purchase various handicraft products, and Lombok’s superior culinary arts will be on display through the website of Indonesian creative works.
