Hopefully in five to six months, IPB University will have IPB Pay. With BNI's support, IPB Pay will be able to provide a new strength for IPB University. If that can happen, the ecosystem will be even wider. And we will be able to lead in providing integrated management and financial services, both externally and internally,” he said.

But now, we have to talk about ecosystems, they must be integrated. Thank you for the long-standing cooperation we have worked together all this time. Hopefully we can continue to work for this nation, "he concluded. (Rz/Zul) (IAAS/AML)
