PT SMI Secures Support from Islamic Development Bank for National Development Financing

Jakarta, 13 May 2023 – Edwin Syahruzad, President Director of PT Sarana Multi Infrastruktur (Persero) ("PT SMI") and Islamic Development Bank's Vice President of Operations, Dr. Mansur Muhtar, have signed a commitment document for a Line of Financing Facility (LoF) worth $100 million from IsDB. This LoF will provide PT SMI with alternative funding sources to finance national development as well as to support the Islamic financing ecosystem in Indonesia. Together, PT SMI and IsDB will catalyze infrastructure development in Indonesia through Shariah-based financing instruments. The signing, witnessed by the Minister of Finance of the Republic of Indonesia, Sri Mulyani Indrawati, and the President of IsDB, Muhammad Al-Jasser, took place in Jeddah, as part of the IsDB 48th Annual Meeting from 10-13 May 2023. Moreover, this signing of the LoF is a follow-up to the Memorandum of Understanding between PT SMI and IsDB at the G20 Presidency in Indonesia in 2022.

Edwin Syahruzad stated, "Our collaboration with IsDB has been ongoing, particularly in increasing the inclusivity of Shariah finance towards infrastructure projects in Indonesia. Through the Shariah financing ecosystem that we will continue to develop with IsDB, PT SMI hopes to attract other Shariah funding sources to support our national development priorities. This will create a large multiplier effect and have a positive impact on accelerating development in Indonesia."

Under the LoF framework, the collaboration between the two parties will cover potential financing in the area of Energy Transition and Renewable Energy, through the provision of blended financing facilities and capacity building, including through the Energy Transition Mechanism Country Platform, where PT SMI was designated by the Ministry of Finance to become the Country Platform Manager at the G20 Presidency in Indonesia in 2022. Additionally, IsDB can co-finance infrastructure projects developed by both business entities and local governments, as well as the development of Shariah financing products and businesses in PT SMI, to enhance the Shariah financing ecosystem, particularly towards national development.
