Jakarta, 17 January 2017 - Bank Mandiri is to provide non-cash payment services during the 2017 iteration of Indonesia Fashion Week (IFW) as a manifestation of the Company’s support for Indonesia’s creative industries and the National Non-Cash Movement.

During the event, which will be held at the Jakarta Convention Center on 1-5 February 2017, Bank Mandiri will also present the creations of a number of young designers who have graduated from the Mandiri Young Entrepreneur (Wirausaha Muda Mandiri/WMM) program.

Bank Mandiri Corporate Secretary Rohan Hafas said that the Company's involvement via Mandiri Art in the event, which will bring together hundreds of local designers, was proof of Mandiri’s strong commitment to the creation of a favorable ecosystem for the development of the creative industries, including fashion, so as to help grow the national economy.

“We recognize the importance of events such as Indonesia Fashion Week, which serves as a showcase for our Indonesian designers, who frequently incorporate a variety of ethnic elements in their work.

Consequently, we will provide the best possible electronic banking services so as to support the event and help motivate our designers,” Rohan said during a press conference on IFW 2017 in Jakarta on Tuesday (Jan 17).

The banking services that will be provided by Bank Mandiri, Rohan said, include the installing of Mandiri electronic data capture (EDC) machines in all of the exhibition booths and food stalls, while all transactions conducted using Bank Mandiri credit cards during the event will be interest free. In addition, visitors can use Mandiri debit and prepaid e-money cards to conduct transactions at IFW 2017.

“We hope that our various electronic financial services products will make the process of conducting financial transactions more convenient and enjoyable for visitors,” Rohan said.
Through Mandiri Art, Rohan said, Bank Mandiri has also staged or supported various other cultural activities aimed at strengthening patriotism and love of country, such as an exhibition of art works from the State Palace, Mandiri ArtJog and Mandiri Art Charity.

“Going forward, Bank Mandiri will continue to support cultural events like these as part of the realization of our vision of advancing the country,” said Rohan.
