The central bank’s spokesman Tirta Segara said, the increase was attributable to foreign exchange receipts, primarily from the issuance of government global bonds, the auction of Bank Indonesia foreign exchange bills, tax revenues and oil & gas export proceeds, as well as the withdrawal of government loans, which were more than outweighed the use of foreign exchange among other for repayments of government external debt and BI foreign exchange bills matured during period.
