Official Reserve Assets May 2021 Remained High

Press Releases

No.23/ 138 /DKom

Indonesia’s official reserve assets remained high at USD136.4 billion as of end-May 2021, despite  declining from USD138.8 billion as of end-April 2021. The position of official reserve assets was equivalent to finance  9.5 months of imports or 9.1 months of imports and servicing government’s external debt,  and well above the international adequacy standard of three months imports. Bank Indonesia considers that the official reserve assets position was able to support the external sector resilience and maintain macroeconomic and financial system stability.

The decrease of official reserve assets in May 2021 was influenced, amongst others, by the government’s external debt payment. Moving forward, Bank Indonesia views that the official reserve assets remain adequate, supported by the stability and solid domestic economic outlook, in line with the policy responses to stimulate economic recovery.
