JAKARTA (Reuters) - Indonesia's central bank said on Thursday it is monitoring global risks, including the direction of policies in the United States and China.
In a statement, Bank Indonesia also said it expected the country to post a relatively large surplus in its balance of payments this year due to year-to-date inflows, but it is monitoring risks of capital reversal.
Earlier on Thursday, the central bank held its benchmark rate IDCBRR=ECI at 4.75 percent, as expected by all 23 analysts in a Reuters poll.
