Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – The Republic of Indonesia Money Printing Public Company (Peruri) talks about paper money amid the onslaught of the cashless era.
Main Director of Peruri Dwina Septiani Wijaya admits that there are many questions about the fate of money-making companies in the current digitalization era.
“This may come as a bit of a surprise to some circles,” said Dwina in the BUMN Performance Report 2023 on CNBC Indonesia, Thursday (31/8/2023).
He explained that the existence of currency has never entered a negative period. Not only in Indonesia, but even in the world.
The difference is that in developed countries the growth is smaller. While in large countries with large populations such as Africa and Asia it is higher.
That is, only its growth may slow down.
“In the past, it was fifteen percent, now we are maybe 6 percent,” he explained.
So, even though it is in the cashless era, demand is not an issue. Because there will still be growth that forms the basis of currency.
