    May 29, 2020

    OJK published a policy package that sets out relaxations to certain regulatory capital and liquidity risk framework provisions in the banking sector to help maintain financial sector stability amid COVID-19 pandemic. The policy package for commercial banks includes relaxation measures related to reporting, credit treatment, and governance of restructured credit or financing in accordance with the Circular POJK No.11/POJK.03/2020.

Additionally, OJK issued a statement highlighting that the stability of the financial services sector has been maintained until May, even amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

    The relaxation policy package for conventional commercial banks and Sharia commercial banks includes the following measures:

    • According to the  POJK No.11/POJK.03/2020, restructured credit or financing are reported in the Financial Information Services System (SLIK).
