This is the 10th annual IKF held by BCA and is the second year that IKF is held virtually.

“We understand that the current economic condition has become a challenge for various parties and our collective participation is needed to rise and build a prosperous economy.

In this event, participants will understand the prospects for Indonesia's economic growth by 2022 from several speakers," said Cyrillus Harinowo as Commissioner of BCA and Supervisor of BCA Learning Service.
“IKF becomes an interesting forum for the whole community to view the current and future economic prospectus. BCA's consistency in presenting IKF is our commitment to provide comprehensive and strategic education for the community. Hopefully this year's IKF can provide new insights for all participants who join and become a source of educational information," said Jahja Setiaatmadja as President Director of BCA.
This year, the IKF will be held with the concept of a full day forum on Thursday, October 7, 2021 through ikf.co.id page. IKF will be divided into several seminar sessions in the main hall.
