Bank Indonesia’s (BI) board of governors maintained the BI 7-day (Reverse) Repo rate – the benchmark policy rate – at 4.75% on 16 Feb 2017. Moving forward, albeit with increasingly limited room, we believe BI could still cut its key policy rate by another 25bps in 2017, to support economic growth under stable IDR circumstances on:
1. Moderate inflationary pressure;
2. Manageable current account deficit.
