We are very concerned about this incident, said Director of BEI, Tito Sulistio to editor in Jakarta, Sunday (13/5).

The experience of the terrorist bombing of Thamrin on January 14, 2016, indicates that the terror has no major effect on capital market activity.

Investors in the capital market are not affected by the terror movement that occurs.
Tito believes that the Surabaya bombing terror will also have no significant effect on capital market activity.

President Director of BEI appealed to investors and all capital market participants not to overreact and remain optimistic about the stability of national security.
"As a form of concern and resilience to the tragedy in Surabaya we ask all SROs and subsidiaries within 3 days from Monday (14/5) to Wednesday (16/5) to wear white clothes with black ribbon on the right arm and also appeal Listed Company and Exchange Members to do the same thing that is wearing white clothes with black ribbon as a form of ketegaran, "said Tito.
