It’s been a half year since a 25-basis point hike in the BI reference interest rate that culminated a string of five increases totaling 175 basis points that began in June 2013.  These moves and other steps have inflation, the current account and the rupiah on a better footing according to today’s statement.  Global financial markets are sounder, too.  The statement doesn’t indicate when the next policy change is likely to happen.
