This collaboration of shared goals and movements will further strengthen BCA in encouraging people to love, develop, and increase the added value of local products and be proud of those made in Indonesia," said Jahja.
BCA contributed to the success of the Gernas BBI series of activities by assisting the marketing program of Bangga Buatan Indonesia products through e-commerce sites by providing discounted prices.

In line with Gernas BBI, BCA has developed the #BanggaLokal program at the end of 2020. The #BanggaLokal program has brought together hundreds of merchants consisting of health & beauty, fashion, food & beverage, as well as hobbies & activities merchants. In addition, because they have the same goal, in 2021 there will be a #BanggaLokal, #BanggaBuatanIndonesia program.
Concretely, BCA provides assistance to MSMEs by helping to curate MSME products so that they can be promoted through promotional and communication programs, so as to increase awareness and sales; assisting the process of preparing MSMEs for onboarding in e-commerce and digital-based sales platforms that make it easier for consumers to access MSME products; as well as assisting the business development process through credit facilities for those who qualify and provide electronic payment infrastructure (QRIS and EDC).
As of November 2020, BCA recorded a total outstanding distribution of BCA MSMEs of IDR77 trillion to 135,000 debtors with an average growth for the last 3 years of 15% above the average growth of banking MSME loans of 9%.
"The presence of Gernas BBI 2021 can be a good start at the beginning of this year to raise the spirit of the Indonesian people in building MSME businesses. This movement should be supported by all parties, especially during this pandemic. Hopefully, Gernas BBI 2021 can be a medium for the revival of Indonesian local products," concluded Jahja.
