In fact, Indonesia's Finance Ministry released a statement on Monday (07/03) that said Southeast Asia's largest economy recorded its biggest ever sale of Sukri bonds. Between 19 February and 4 March 2016 Indonesia offered the three year SR-008 Islamic bond series (carrying a fixed coupon of 8.3 percent per year), raising IDR 31.5 trillion (approx. USD $2.4 billion).
