JAKARTA. PT Bank Central Asia Tbk (BBCA) scores a profit of IDR 14.5 trillion in H1 2021, climbing 18.1% from the number recorded in the same period in 2020.

Jahja Setiaatmadja, President Director of BCA, claims that even when the pandemic drags down the economy, his company would not sit idle and instead keep finding business opportunities through virtual innovations and payment digitalisation. Therefore, it brings a good result shown in Q3 and Q4 of 2020, which continues to Q1 2021.
