The current foreign exchange reserve position sufficient to support Indonesia’s resilience against external factors, while maintaining a sustainable economic growth rate in the future.

“The increase was influenced by the reception of foreign reserves mainly from the proceeds of the auction Securities Bank Indonesia (SBBI) and other receipts. The revenues exceeded the needs of foreign exchange, which among other things is used for the payment of foreign debt,” BI Director Arbonas Hutabarat said.
