Bank Indonesia (BI) is the central bank of the Republic of Indonesia. Agus Martowardojo, formerly the finance minister, is the current governor. The last governor before Agus Martowardojo is Darmin Nasution, resigned at 23 May 2013. Agus Martowardojo was sworn in by president Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono on May 23, 2013. Finance Minister Sri Mulyani Indrawati was proposed as a candidate for governor of BI in 2009. However, the suggestion did not proceed and she later left the cabinet on 5 May 2010 and moved to the World Bank Group as Managing Director. By March 26, 2013, panel of Indonesian parliament member approved Finance Minister Agus Martowardojo to become the central bank governor.
Bank Indonesia was founded on 1 July 1953 from the nationalization of De Javasche Bank (Bank of Java), a Dutch bank dating from colonial times which regulated and issued the Netherlands Indies gulden. For the next 15 years, the Bank of Indonesia carried on commercial activities as well as acting as the nation’s bank.
This came to an end with the Law No.13/1968 on the Central Bank, which was subsequently replaced by Law No.23/1999, giving the bank independence. Thereafter, the bank reported to the parliament (People's Representative Council) instead of the president, and the bank’s governor was no longer a member of the cabinet.
