Apart from stabilizing the rupiah, Bank Indonesia’s foreign exchange reserves also declined due to external debt payments. In a statement released on the website of the Indonesian central bank it read that the current level of foreign exchange reserve assets (USD $111.6 billion) can adequately cover 6.9 months of imports or 6.6 months of imports and servicing of government external debt repayments, which is well above the international standards of reserves adequacy at three months of imports.

At the end of February 2015 Indonesia's foreign exchange reserves stood at USD $115.5 billion.
