Date 31 Maret 2021
President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo on Wednesday (31/3) inspected the COVID-19 mass vaccination for banking and capital market players at the Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX) Building, Sudirman Central Business District (SCBD), Jakarta.
The President arrived at the location at around 8.45 a.m. and inspected the stages of vaccination, starting from the registration process, health screening, vaccine injection to post-injection observation. Most of the vaccine recipients are public service officers who should interact intensely with customers, such as tellers and officers in the customer service department.
“This morning, we hold mass vaccination for banking and capital market players, especially for those dealing with customers and the public every day, including customer services who serve customers, or tellers who also serve the public. They’re all on the priority list,” President Jokowi said in his press statement.
According to the President, both banking and capital market sectors are pivotal in driving Indonesia’s economy that is affected by the pandemic.
“We’re all aware that the main drivers of our national economy include consumption, investment, export and import, as well as banking and capital market. Those aspects are very important parts for the movement of our economy,” he said.
The mass vaccination for banking and capital market players was carried out in the IDX building and four other locations, namely the BNI Tower, the CIMB Niaga Building, Menara Danamon 2, and the BCA Main Building.
On that occasion, the Head of State expressed hope that through this vaccination, activities in the financial sector can recover immediately and everything will back to normal.
In the meantime, Minister of Finance Sri Mulyani said that mass vaccination for players in the financial sector is a manifestation of the Government’s attention to the economic recovery. The financial sector, including banking and capital market, indeed becomes the Government’s priority.
“I hope that all of you who are in the financial sector, be it banking, non-banking, and also capital market, can rebuild your confidence since it is important for our economic recovery,” the Minister said.
At the end of her statement, Sri Mulyani reminded all players in the financial sector to remain disciplined in implementing health protocols.
“Hopefully, everything goes well and everyone will be in a good health condition. Don’t forget to wear your masks and be disciplined in adhering to health protocols, even though you have been vaccinated,” she said. (FID/UN) (RIF/MMB)
