What about the Bank Indonesia benchmark interest rate?
As already mentioned above, President invites banks in Indonesia to adjust lending rates with the reference interest rate of Bank Indonesia (BI). Generally, changes that occur in the BI benchmark interest rate are followed by changes in bank interest rates.
If the BI reference interest rate falls, deposit rates or bank lending rates usually go down. However, the facts that occur, bank interest rates are down only deposit rates in the form of deposits. While bank lending rates, instead of decreasing, there remain no changes to adjust.
Then, what is the current BI benchmark interest rate? Just for information, BI has several times lowered the benchmark interest rate. This decline is a response to the weakening of the global economy. The following is a list of BI 7-Day (Reverse) Repo Rate reference rates.
Well, that was information about the lending rates of banks in Indonesia in 2019 and the current magnitude of the BI reference interest rate. Hopefully the information above is useful!
