Investment Position (IIP) recorded a lower net liability at the end of the
second quarter of 2021. At the end of the reporting period, Indonesia's IIP recorded
a net liability totalling USD264.1 billion (23.8% of GDP), lower than the net
liability of USD267.5 billion (25.2% of GDP) at the end of the first quarter of
2021. The decrease was stemmed from a larger increment of Foreign Financial
Assets (FFA) than Foreign Financial Liabilities (FFL).
Indonesia’s FFA position expanded partly due to rising transactions of direct
investment and other investment assets. The FFA position at the end of the second quarter of 2021 grew 1.2% (qtq) to USD415.0 billion from USD410.2 billion at the end of the
first quarter of 2021. In addition to transaction factors, the FFA gain was also prompted by a
revaluation caused by broad US dollar depreciation against major global
currencies, together with increasing stock indexes of most asset placement countries.
The higher in Indonesia’s FFL position was supported by
foreign capital in the form of direct investment and portfolio investment. The FFL position climbed by 0,2% (qtq), from USD677,7 billion
at the end of the first quarter of 2021 to USD679.1 billion at the end of the
second quarter of 2021. The rising FFL was primarily attributable to an
increase of foreign capital inflows in
direct investment and portfolio investment in line with the positive perception of investors concerning
the promising domestic economic outlook. A further incline in the FFL position was offset by a negative revaluation of domestic financial instruments as
the declined stock prices of several domestic companies.
Bank Indonesia views that
Indonesia's IIP at the end of the second quarter of 2021 remained solid and
supported external resilience. This
condition is indicated by Indonesia's IIP liability structure dominated by
long-term maturity instruments. Going forward, Bank Indonesia believes that
Indonesia's IIP performance will be maintained in line with the effort to
stimulate economic recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic, supported by the
synergy of Bank Indonesia's policy mix and government policies, as well as
policies of other relevant authorities. Nevertheless, Bank Indonesia will
observe the potential risk of IIP net liabilities to the economy.
Further information is presented in the
second quarter of 2021 Indonesia's IIP Report on the Bank Indonesia website.
