BANDUNG-Bank Indonesia West Java Province noted that the financial stability of West Java has monitored its banking intermediation performance well in line with the increasing loan growth for project location in West Java and the accumulation of DPK.
According to the Head of West Java Provincial Representative Office, Wiwiek Sisto Widayat, project location credit in West Java in November 2017 was recorded at Rp600.26 trillion with growth of 8.96% (yoy) or an increase compared to the end of third quarter of 2017 of 8.24%.
"The increase is driven by interest rate growth which also continues to decline," said Wiwiek, told reporters at the BI Building Jabar, Tuesday (09/01).
However, according to Wiwiek, as credit expansion increased, credit risk also increased as reflected in the increase in "Non Performing Loan (NPL)" from 3.38% at the end of Q3 / 2017 to 3.45% in November 2017.
"On the corporate side, credit growth is observed to slow (from 3.37% to 1.46%), followed by a decrease in credit risk or NPL from 5.44% to 5.15%," he said.
On the household side, loan portfolio also grew from 12.63% to 15.41% with NPL ratio slightly down from 2.20% to 2.15%. (Parno)
