VOI NEWS 10.00 LOCAL TIME, GMT+7, 11-10-2017

Indonesia is wary of the Spanish solo player Sara Penalver in a competition for the quarter-finals at the Badminton World Federation -BWF Junior Championships 2017 in Yogyakarta, Wednesday (11/10). As a winner of group H1, Indonesia will meet Spain as champion of group H2. According to manager of Indonesian team, Susi Susanti, Sara Penalver has a game character like a senior Spanish player, Carolina Marin. Although Indonesia is still superior to Spain, Susi Susanti asks her players to stay focused in play and should not be careless. Susi Susanti also said that in addition to women's singles, the women's doubles and men's singles players are the reason to be wary of.

“Indeed we are still superior to Spain. Hopefully they can appear more serious and maximally. They have to show all of their abilities instead of only adaptation. So in the next round they are not surprised anymore,” said Susi Susanti.

Meanwhile, the Spanish coach, Oscar Martinez said Indonesia is a strong team. Therefore, he asked his players not to underestimate Indonesia. Especially as a host, Indonesia has a lot of supporters. Of the five numbers held in a group match, Oscar Martinez hopes to reach a title from his sole female player Sara Penalver. Spain sends eight players in the championship consisting of four male players and four female players. (paramita/edit r)


BI to Distribute E-Money Cards for Free

Bank Indonesia (BI) announced that it would distribute electronic money (e-money) cards for free on October 16 to 31. Pungky Wibowo, director of electronic money at the BI’s payment system policies and supervisory department, said in Jakarta on Tuesday (10/10) that the toll road users who have not acquired e-money cards yet would be given a card at toll gates. He said that the cards are for those who have not had e-money cards. They are expected to be honest. However, Pungky clarified that toll road users still must purchase the balance. Pungky added that it’s a program initiated by the Toll Road Agency under the supervision of the Toll Road Regulatory Agency (BPJT), in collaboration with banks. The free e-money cards are issued by five banks, namely Bank Rakyat Indonesia (BRI), Bank Negara Indonesia (BNI), Bank Mandiri, Bank Tabungan Negara (BTN), and Bank Central Asia (BCA). Pungky hoped that the program will encourage toll road users to utilize e-money as a payment means before it becomes mandatory on October 31. (tempo)
