Abstract

The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic has occurred in almost all industries, including the banking industry. The uncertain economic conditions since the pandemic have disrupted the economy of a country. In Indonesia, in particular, the government is making efforts to encourage the recovery of the national economy. This National Economic Recovery Program from the Indonesian government aims to protect, maintain and improve the ability of business actors to run their business during the Covid-19 pandemic. The digital economy has become paramount as industries and institutions including, commercial banks, strive to adopt better and more effective methods of providing services to their clients and customers daily. The problem of the slow process of accelerating the development of the digital banking and the issue of collaboration with the FinTech industry in the banking sector are considerations to encourage national economic recovery during the Covid-19 pandemic. The purpose of this digital economic model is to empirically test whether the FinTech industry has a role in mediating and moderating the influence of banking digitalization on national economic recovery through the development of cooperation, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic. This empirical study uses a quantitative method approach. The survey uses an online questionnaire and data collection by purposive random sampling technique. From 200 employee respondents from various banks in Indonesia, finally, 175 samples were taken as valid data and processed using smartPLS software. The results of this study reveal that during the current covid-19 pandemic, the phenomenon of digital economic development can encourage national economic recovery through the development of cooperation in the banking sector with the FinTech industry. They must work together in realizing a digital economy through optimal financial digitalization. The results also reveal that the “FinTech Industry” is not a disruption. But, it has the potential to collaborate with banking sectors through the development of cooperation. The development of this digital economic model expects to make a real contribution in encouraging national economic recovery. The role of the FinTech industry in mediating and moderating the influence of banking digitalization on national economic recovery during the COVID-19 pandemic in this empirical study is a novelty in research related to this digital economy.
