Global payments and technology company Mastercard fully supports Indonesia’s efforts to accelerate financial inclusion by building a digital ecosystem through collaborative and scalable initiatives.
He went on to explain that in Indonesia, Mastercard launched its skilling program, the Mastercard Academy 2.0 in 2019.
