(12 August 2015, JAKARTA) The Center for Banking and Financial Services will be awarding the CBFS Banking Visionary Award 2015 to Mr Budi G.

“Mandiri Institute (MI) aims to help the nation in building financial infrastructure as fast and powerful as the physical infrastructure, in the same pace as Bank Mandiri tries to provide new products in financial transactions, saving, lending and insurance in every corner of Indonesian villages and cities. MI also shapes the global and regional agenda according to the Indonesian perspective, as we need to be more active in the global agenda such as G20, APEC, IMF and World Bank forum.
MI wants to stand differently with other institutions. MI wants to talk about movement rather than progress. MI wants to talk about connectivity rather than hierarchy. MI wants to talk about influence rather than authority. MI prefers action to work. MI wants to deliver an impact rather than giving advices. MI is expected to help fostering the engagement of all stakeholders in Indonesia (government, private sector and university) and to help shaping Indonesia’s agenda to the world in order to benefit the country. ”
Budi Gunardi, CEO, Bank Mandiri, 12 May 2014
Mr Rico Frans will be accepting the award on his behalf on 13 August 2015 at the Payments, Settlements and Remittances Asia 2015, Le Méridien Jakarta.
