In order to keep the society`s level of trust towards banking industry, cooperation and coordination between OJK and LPS is required, particularly in handling banks that have problems. The handling requires a close coordination, mainly in necessary joint investigation. This MoU is required in order to expedite the implementation of OJK`s and LPS duties, so as to create a synergized cooperation and coordination.

The MoU contains primary subjects related to effectiveness:
