The two main analyses are: DEA model (CRS and CRS model for efficiency) and regression methods (OLS method of regression and correlation matrix). The result of DEA analysis indicate that there is a constant increase of efficiency from 0.795 (CRS & VRS) in 2008 to 0.832 (CRS) and 0.913 (VRS) in 2010. The OLS method shows results as following: all variables that are involved in the research (non -performing loans -9.9, interest rate of loans -5.2 and ROA -14.7) have negative impact on banking sector. Also in T-statistics analysis argue that all variables are non-significant (T<2) to banking sector. In correlation method, the results show that the non -performing loans (-0.48) and ROA (-0.08) have a negative correlation whereas FDI (0.06) has positive correlation to banking sector.
