PERBANAS or Indonesian Banks’ Association, is a non-profit organisation formed in 1951. It was originally set up as a grouping of private banks in Indonesia. At an annual congress meeting in 2003, it was approved that the association be reformed into an organisation of all types of banks in Indonesia. This includes private banks, state-owned banks as well as Syariah banks.
PERBANAS is the sole banking association in Indonesia. PERBANAS also offers university courses in banking & finance through ABFI Institute.
