Abstract

Abstract. This study aims to measure technical efficiency and identify factors that affect technical inefficiency of Islamic rural banks (BPRS) in East Java Province, Indonesia. We also want to test whether BPRS operating in districts are more efficient than those operating in cities. Data that we use are unbalanced panel data from 2011 until 2016 using stochastic frontier analysis. This study has successfully identified that the technical efficiency of BPRS operation is 90.12 percent. It means that there is still about 9.88 percent that can be optimized to improve their performance. Factors that cause technical inefficiency are Capital Adequacy Ratio (CAR) and Net Performing Financing (NPF). To improve technical efficiency of BPRS operations, the effort that must be made is to ensure each BPRS has sufficient capital stock to be channeled into loans. In addition, BPRS should also ensure the risks of bad loans are minimum.

Abstract

Abstract. This study aims to observe the existence of Halal food industry in developed and developing countries, and ways to increase the acceptance towards Halal products from non-Moslem societies. The approach is based on observation of the business environment of Halal food industry, online research and analysis of papers in journals. The finding indicates that although developed countries have less Moslem but the market share for Halal food is high. Countries with less Moslem population namely Thailand, United Kingdom and Australia can capture the opportunity of Halal food in the global market. Thus, most of Halal food exporters are coming from there. Halal food industry can be a catalyst to develop other potential sectors who get the negative impact from economic crisis in a country with less Moslem population. Countries namely Thailand, Australia, United Kingdom and Japan have applied commercial farm in their supply management to support their Halal food production. Furthermore, the awareness of consuming Halal food also come from non-Moslem due to the safer and freshness of the food. Hence it is important for producer to promote Halal food as being safety-compliant.

Abstract

Abstract. This paper aims to propose a model of investment account based on Islamic Financial Services Board guiding principles. The research figures out some factors affecting the process of deploying investment account, the proposed model, cost - benefit analysis as well as the steps to be taken by Islamic banking stakeholders to install the model in the future. Having reviewed many litetatures related to irregular deposit, investment account as well as the institutional theory, the study found that the adoption of investment account heavily relies on the political factor applied by Bank Indonesia. Law No. 21 Year 2008 that regulates Indonesian Islamic Banking clause 35 stated that Bank Indonesia has coercive power to drive the accounting and governance standard for the Indonesian Islamic banking. Other actors such as Financial Services Authority, National Sharia Board, and Indonesia Deposit Insurance Corporation also do affect the regulation on Investment Account. This paper informs the policy makers to set different regulation on investment account within the practice of dual banking system.
