PT Bank BTPN Tbk (“Bank BTPN”) and Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation (“SMBC”) obtained 2022 Champion BUMN Partner Appreciation awards from the Ministry of State-Owned Enterprises (SOEs).
The event is designed to appreciate partners that have supported SOEs in realizing more effective and efficient performance.
The awards were handed over by SOE Minister Erick Thohir at an event held at Grha Pertamina, Jakarta, on May 9, 2022. Also in presence in the event were Minister of Cooperatives and Small and Medium Enterprises Teten Masduki, officials from the Ministry of SOEs, SOE directors, and representatives from SOEs’ partners.
The awards were divided into two categories in terms of business coverage areas: national partners that serve local customers and global partners that operate beyond Indonesia.
Bank BTPN came first under the National Private Creditor category, while SMBC also sat at the top under the Global Private Creditor category.
The 2022 Champion BUMN Partner Appreciation Awards were given after a series of selection and assessment processes were carried out based on partnership performance throughout 2021.
As many as 268 partners were nominated by SOEs in 12 clusters for the 2022 Champion BUMN Partners Awards, and 41 of them were selected by the Ministry of SOEs for this year. They were picked based on a number of service quality-related criteria, such as tangibles, empathy, responsiveness, reliability, and assurance.
Thank you for the support of the entire team of Bank BTPN, SMBC, and the Ministry of SOEs for this esteemed recognition. Hopefully, these awards will strengthen the synergy between both Bank BTPN and SMBC, and SOEs and the government as a whole, as well as allow Bank BTPN and SMBC to further penetrate the Indonesian market.
