JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com – Islamic finance in Indonesia has held its ground against the Covid-19 pandemic, proving yet again it is more stable and capable of outpacing conventional banking, Finance Minister Sri Mulyani Indrawati said on Tuesday.

“Financial intermediation tends to decline, but the performance of the Islamic banking industry is stable and growing more robust than the conventional banking industry,” Sri Mulyani said during a virtual event titled the Sharia Business and Academic Sinergy (SBAS) on December 29.

“This has happened before during the crisis in 2008,” she added.

Meanwhile, the total assets of the Islamic finance industry reached 1,710.16 trillion rupiahs ($121.3 billion) as of September with a 9.69 percent market share.
