Jakarta. The Indonesian government plans to issue US-dollar sukuk as well as euro- and yen-denominated conventional bonds in the first half of this year, a Finance Ministry official told reporters on Monday (20/03).
"For foreign currency denominated (bonds), we are planning to finish in this first semester," Loto Srinaita Ginting, a director at the financing office, said.
Finance Ministry officials have previously said Indonesia will raise $5.5 billion from global markets by the end of this year. In December 2016, the government sold $3.5 billion in global bonds to help finance the 2017 budget.
