The central bank (Bank Indonesia/BI) decided to hold the BI 7-day (Reverse) Repo Rate (BI-7 day RR Rate) at 4.75%, unchanged for past ten consecutive months while maintaining the Deposit Facility (DF) and Lending Facility (LF) rates at 4.00% and 5.50% respectively, effective¬†21st July 2017. The decision is consistent with BI’s efforts to maintain macroeconomic and financial system stability, while considering the dynamics of global and domestic economy. The process of domestic economic recovery continues albeit not as strong as previously projected, especially due to consumption slowdown despite an increase in investment. Pressures on inflation are expected to decrease below previous expectations, due to week demand and controllable food price.
