Telco player Indosat Ooredoo is looking for a way to participate in the synergy involving state-owned enterprise (SOE), a director said Thursday.

Wholesale and enterprise director Herfini Haryono said that SOE synergy program, such as the integration of the ATMs of state-owned banks, provided potential for telecommunications companies, but only Telkom Indonesia had been included by the government so far.

“We already asked the SOE Ministry if we can be an alternative IT provider in the program along with the ‘big brother’ [Telkom],” Herfini said during the release of Indosat Ooredoo ICT’s 2017 annual report in Jakarta on Thursday.

She said that despite of 65 percent of company’s shares being owned by Qatari Ooredoo, the government still owned 14.29 percent. The company still gave dividends to the government and reported to the SOE ministry.

Herfini said that banking sector synergy was already monopolized by Telkom, but other synergy projects were still open.

“We can supply the technology to airport operator Angkasa Pura or port operator Pelindo, from WiFi in the passenger lounges to traffic management systems,” she said. (evi)
