Indonesia's foreign debt rose 3.7 percent (y/y) to USD $311.5 billion at end-February 2016, a higher growth pace compared to the 2.2 percent (y/y) recorded in the preceding month. The central bank of Indonesia (Bank Indonesia) informed that rising foreign debt was solely due to higher public sector foreign debt, while private sector foreign debt in fact eased. The Indonesian government took up long-term foreign debt to fund its ambitious infrastructure development programs. As a result, public sector external debt rose 9 percent to USD $146.9 billion in February, or 47.2 percent of Indonesia's total foreign debt.
