The BI 7- Day Reverse Repo Rate is held at 4.50%






The BI Board of Governors agreed on 13th and 14th April 2020 to hold the BI 7- Day Reverse Repo Rate at 4.50%, while also maintaining the Deposit Facility (DF) and Lending Facility (LF) rates at 3.75% and 5.25%. The decision considers the need to maintain external stability amidst heightened global financial market uncertainty, while Bank Indonesia perceives adequate space to lower the policy rate due to mild inflationary pressures and the urgent need to stimulate economic growth.
