The Indonesian Finance Minister, Sri Mulyani Indrawati, estimates Indonesia’s economic growth in 2023 at around 5 percent (y/y), slightly below the target that was set in the 2023 State Budget (namely 5.3 percent y/y). Strong economic growth and relatively low inflation rate compared to inflation rates in most countries abroad mainly contributed analysts’ positive projections on Indonesia’s economy in 2023.

This year, the Indonesian government puts emphasis in maintaining economic resilience and recovery by ensuring more productive and quality government spending, focusing on varying financing sources that are not vulnerable to global volatility, especially foreign direct investment (FDI) and implementing a comprehensive policy mix to accelerate economic recovery through pro-stability. Also, Bank Indonesia, the central bank of the Republic Indonesia, is taking extra steps and multi-actor synergy in maintaining the country’s inflation stability even though global supply chain disruptions are still ongoing.

With the readiness of the national economy in facing the existing challenges, Indonesia is estimated to become The Bright Spot in Asia. Given the current local and global macro and geo-political development, how should finance leaders in Indonesia be prepared to remain resilient even though the global economy will experience a deeper slowdown in 2023? Moreover, in the race to innovate, automate and transform, and against the continuing uncertainty, how should finance leaders prioritise the many priorities on the roadmap of growth and recovery in the next normal?

Themed “Making Finance a Better Strategic Partner to Business”, FutureCFO Conference 2023 series seeks to bring to the fore strategies, process transformation and technology innovations that aim to do just that – make finance, and the CFO, an even better strategic partner to business.

Taking place on 13 July 2023, the 2nd Annual FutureCFO Indonesia Conference will gather over 120 senior finance professionals from multiple industries in Indonesia.

  • Managing the margin pressures in an inflationary environment

Chairman’s Welcome Remarks

Allan Tan, Group Editor-in-Chief, CXOCIETY


PANEL DISCUSSION I: Continuing the Pace of Change: Unlocking Growth Opportunities and Tackling Challenges in 2024

The confluence of rising inflation and interest rate, tensions in geopolitical, regulatory changes, energy security, foreign exchange volatility, supply chain disruptions as well as climate change risk had reshaped CFO’s responsibilities in magnitudes. With things are changing rapidly locally and globally, exacerbated by slowing growth, planning for 2024 is certainly not an easy task for finance leaders in Indonesia. CFOs are required to be agile and flexible to capture new opportunities especially with the potential shrinking in customer demands as the world is likely or already in recession.

  • Doing more with less in the growing volatility, uncertainty complexity and ambiguity (VUCA) environment
  • Managing the margin pressures: How can finance leaders help accelerate recovery?
  • Areas to raise and cut spending in 2024
  • Ensuring long-term sustainable growth post-pandemic
  • Project financing in 2024: Maximising access to capital amidst changing dynamics

Allan Tan, Group Editor-in-Chief, CXOCIETY

Chee-Hean Chew, Director & Asia Pacific South Controller, CABOT INDONESIA


KEYNOTE I: Optimising Risk Management, Liquidity and Capital to Drive Cost-Efficiencies for CFOs

Are you feeling the heat of inflationary pressure on insurance costs? As expenses continue to surge, it’s imperative to adopt a strategic approach to address your risk management strategy.

  • Unlocking cost efficiencies, enhancing capacity and optimising insurance procurement process with a data-driven strategy
  • Evaluating the total cost of risk, efficiently managing capital and enhancing liquidity in a heightened interest rate environment
  • Practical insights and actionable strategies to navigate the turbulent economic, political and complex risk environment with better clarity

Mukesh Ramani, Natural Resources Growth Lead, Asia, AON
James Ponsford, Head of Growth & Regional Director, Credit Solutions Asia, AON


PANEL DISCUSSION II: Digital Transformation and Reality Gap: What’s Next Post Digitalisation?

Digital transformation has saved many businesses when the pandemic struck. However, in reality, almost no organisation has finished their digitalisation journey. While most organisations are now more digitally mature and they are in the better position to thrive in the post-pandemic era, what businesses are asking for constantly evolves.

  • Advancing digitalisation initiatives vs. traditional work environments
  • Capitalising on digitalisation investment to stay resilient, flexible and efficient amidst escalating costs
  • Keeping up with digital acceleration while ensuring employee’s continuous engagement
  • Lesson learnt from 2022-23: What can be done differently in 2024?

KEYNOTE II: Moving beyond Automation and into Autonomous Finance

Finance functions want to close faster, cheaper and with fewer errors. According to a recent Gartner survey, 55% of finance functions aim for a touchless close by 2025.

The pandemic, including social and operational restrictions it imposed, rising needs of the stakeholders and macro-economic pressures are creating impetus for a touchless close. However, to achieve a touchless close, it will require finance leaders and controllers to move beyond automation and into autonomous finance.

  • Shifting from process automation to intelligent automation
  • Autonomous finance for augmented real-time insights, effortless compliance and greater flexibility in financial strategy
  • Narrowing the financial close and aiming to make it touch-less
  • Accelerating back-and-middle-office finance operations to ensure digital maturity
  • Operationalising AI to move an autonomous, touchless financial close

Benedict Sim, Business Solutions Consultant, Lead, SYMTRAX


FIRESIDE CHAT II: Leading on Sustainability: How CFOs Can Create Value through ESG

Today’s CFOs are often tasked to ensure their organisation’s sustainable initiatives successful. With the myriad and speed of ESG developments, creating further value for the organisation and calculating the value of the return of ESG initiatives are difficult.

  • Leading sustainability from the CFO’s seat
  • Stepping up enterprise’s ESG initiatives
  • Managing the ESG’s values and risks as regulations and standards change
  • Tying the benefits of ESG back to the business’ financial returns and income statement
  • Leveraging technology to improve productivity, customer experience and intertwine these with ESG strategy

PANEL DISCUSSION IV: Ensuring Financial Resiliency in the Face of a Potential Economic Downturn

Pritika Bhattacharjee, Vice President, Research in the Gartner Finance Practice says: “CFOs are telling their FP&A leaders that they need to improve flexibility of budgeting and forecasting, enable faster capital reallocation, and updated financial models to reflect rapidly changing business realities”.

With economic activity slowing down, optimising sales is often a challenge for many businesses. As businesses enter into low-growth and high-cost setting, securing collections has become difficult and cash flows get increasingly difficult to predict.

  • Improving working capital and cash flow amidst high interest rate and squeezing credit to ensure business continuity
  • Transforming cost structures to operate efficiently and balance fluctuations
  • Creating more agile, scalable and flexible FP&A
  • Optimising business decisions and cash flows with AI/ML-driven scenario planning
  • Rolling forecasts and scenario planning to protect free cash flows and reserves

FIRESIDE CHAT III: FinOps for CFOs: Taking Control of Cloud Costs

When the pandemic hit, organisations pushed themselves to rapidly modernise their applications and platforms and in the pursuit of cost savings, many aimed to become ‘cloud-first’ enterprises. However, as businesses squaring up this year, organisations may overspend on their cloud technology and struggle to keep the cloud costs under control. This session will delve into FinOps or cloud financial operations, an approach that let organisations realise the maximum business value from using the cloud by making data-driven spending decisions. 

  • FinOps in the top of CFO agenda 2023
  • Developing structure and strategy for cloud financial management
  • Establishing FinOps for internal finance, IT and other teams across the organisation
  • Metrics that support cloud cost optimisation
  • Cloud cost saving methods and mistakes to avoid

PANEL DISCUSSION V: The New Breed of Finance Team: How to Start a Team of Experts for the Future Finance

Gartner predicts that by 2024, 30% of organisation will implement and use AI-enabled processes within their financial management infrastructure. Also, 40% of organisations in service-oriented sectors will consolidate their core financial and operational solutions in a single ERP system.

To prepare for the future of finance function, CFOs will need to assemble a squad of finance employees that speak data and even write in Python.

  • The future of finance organisation
  • Determining the needs and skills beyond accounting
  • Developing the latest digital and data competency in the finance team
