LinkAja's efforts in accelerating the digitization of financial inclusion in Indonesia are promoted by cooperating with the East Belitung Regency of the Province of Bangka Belitung Islands. This strategic collaboration provides convenience in transaction services as well as digital financial innovation. Citizens of East Belitung can now enjoy easy payments in various sectors, especially for financial service transactions, which include Electronification of Regional Revenue Transactions (ETPD) and other services organized by the East Belitung Regency Government, digitizing payments in the public service sector such as health, education and tourism.
“This collaboration is one of LinkAja's efforts in expanding access to its services for Indonesia. We hope that LinkAja's presence in the public service ecosystem in East Belitung Regency will make it easier for people to pay taxes and levies as well as daily transactions. This is a manifestation of LinkAja's commitment in building an ecosystem and digital financial service platform that is not only centered on the island of Java and continues to accelerate digital financial inclusion throughout Indonesia." said Widjayanto, LinkAja's Director of Operations.
Burhanudin, the Regent of East Belitung enthusiastically welcomed this collaboration, “LinkAja's presence in the public service ecosystem in East Belitung is an innovation that is also in line with the vision of East Belitung Rising Empowered (Belitung Timur Bangkit Berdaya). In addition, this collaboration is expected to increase regional income and improve public services in various sectors, such as in education, health, economic development of local MSMEs and so on. We also hope that this collaboration provides various benefits, especially for the East Belitung society," he concluded.
