Foreign exchange inflows originating from above-mentioned sources outweighed the use of foreign exchange for repayments of government external debt and maturing Bank Indonesia foreign exchange bills.

In a statement released on the central bank says the current reserve asset position (June 2016) adequately covers 8.4 months of imports or 8.1 months of imports and servicing of government foreign debt repayments. This is regarded as being well above the international standards of reserves adequacy at three months of imports. This means the reserves are sufficient to protect against external factors and maintain the sustainability of the Indonesian economy in the foreseeable future.
