To strengthen public education about economics, Bank Indonesia has launched an initiative to provide reading corners called "BI Corner". In the early stages, efforts will focus on Higher Education and Early Childhood Education (ECD). Within five years, BI corners are expected to be available at every level of education in both local libraries and other public facilities. This program is a part of the implementation of their corporate social responsibility (CSR) program with the theme "Indonesia Cerdas = Smart Indonesia".
