Two Iranian banks have expressed interest in investing in Indonesia, the Economy Minister Ali Tayyebnia said in Jakarta on Wednesday. Tayyebnia told the Antara News Agency “there are two banks from Iran that wish to invest in the Indonesian banking sector; Saman Bank and Parsian Bank.” He also said the two private banks want to build new banks or even buy shares of banks in the world’s largest Muslim nation. One of the reasons the Iranian banks choose Indonesia is because they want to build a good cooperation system in both countries’ banking sector.“Another purpose is to help advance and accelerate the development of economic relations between the two countries. ” President Joko Widodo of Indonesia has said Indonesia has decide to restore banking relations with Iran. He made the statement after talks with Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in Jakarta in March.
