Making Finance Work for the 99%:
A Chat with Indonesia’s Leaders

Pre-COVID, all eyes were on Indonesia as a hotspot for innovative finance. As the pandemic pulls away the curtains of development finance, the country is coming to terms with the fact that finance wasn’t really working for the 99%.

Although innovative finance holds great potential for #BuildingBackBetter, the real situation is dire, with:

  • Limited information on how big multilateral dollars will reach the 99%
  • Donor countries turning inward and investor funding drying up
  • An urgent need to move from relief to COVID-resilience

Join IIX for a virtual discussion on how to make finance work for the last mile. Session features:

  • Prof. Durreen Shahnaz, Founder and CEO of IIX
  • Mr. Robert Kraybill, Chief Investment Officer of IIX
  • Mr Yahya Rachmana Hidayat, Director of Energy Resources, Mineral and Mining at Bappenas (Indonesia’s Ministry of National Development Planning)
  • Director of Bank Indonesia Macroprudential Department
  • Mrs Felicia Barus, Head of Bank Indonesia Institute Academy of Leadership and General Management
