Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen. My name is Suhaedi, Executive Director of Bank Indonesia Regional Office covering Sulawesi, Maluku, and the Papua Islands. Firstly, I would like to thank the Japanese FSA, ADBI, and the IMF for their invitation. It is a great pleasure and honor to chair this very important session, the focus of which is finance to SMEs, with prominent speakers and commentators. As you may be aware, the topics of finance to SMEs, as well as financial inclusion, have become popular topics and are discussed everywhere. It seems to me, this is a kind of paradox because of two things. SMEs have a significant role in economic development, both in the developed and the developing economies.
