The Indonesia Fintech Association sets an example of how professional associations can help new industries grow faster and better
In March 2018, P2P lending startups in Indonesia were taken aback when Wimboh Santoso, Chairman of the Financial Services Authority's (OJK) board of commissioners, said the companies had to stop displaying the OJK’s logo on their platforms.
