Bank Indonesia ensures sufficient liquidity, sees signs of decline in capital outflows

first_imgBank Indonesia (BI) is ensuring the liquidity in the country’s financial system would be sufficient to meet the people’s needs in the coming months as massive capital outflows seen in the past several days have begun to decline.BI Governor Perry Warjiyo said in Jakarta on Thursday that there is at least Rp 450 trillion (US$27.77 billion) in cash stored in banks and ATMs in Indonesia, which would be sufficient for the next six months.“We have been working closely with banks in the last two weeks to boost their liquidity,” Perry told reporters on Thursday during an increased requirement for cash in the past several days to finance efforts to curb the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus. “We want to assure the public that we have sufficient stocks of cash.” Topics : Perry also said the central bank saw signs of easing capital outflows, driven by the announcement of a $2 trillion fiscal stimulus by the United States and to-be-announced stimulus by the European Union.“The stimulus package has reduced pressure on a global scale and resulted in better sentiments for Indonesia’s financial markets,” Perry said, adding the central bank has since recorded a lessening capital outflow.The rupiah appreciated as much as 1.8 percent against the US dollar to Rp 16,205 on Thursday, according to Bloomberg. The Jakarta Composite Index (JCI), meanwhile, jumped the most since 1999 by as much as 11 percent on Thursday’s trading, the best performer in the region, despite other Asian indices recording declines during the day.The COVID-19 crisis is much different than Asia’s crisis in 1998 and the global financial crisis in 2008 as banks remain in a healthy condition despite weakening business activities and volatile financial markets, Perry said.center_img “We want to make sure that the situation is different than the crisis in 1998 and in 2008 as the banking industry remains healthy with low levels of non-performing loans and good financial market conditions,” he added.Because of the pandemic, the central bank also plans to implement shorter trading hours and a shorter settlement period for transactions starting next week.As of Tuesday, BI had injected liquidity of up to Rp 300 trillion into the financial markets and banks to help support the country’s crashing currency as foreign investors sold off Indonesian assets.The central bank recorded a Rp 125.2 trillion capital outflow from government bonds, the stock market and BI certificates so far this year. Foreign investors sold Rp 112 trillion worth of government bonds and Rp 9.2 trillion worth of Indonesian shares, with most of the sell-offs recorded this month.last_img read more

Obama Middle School Girls banquet a smash

first_imgCHAMPIONS—The Obama Middle School basketball team, winner of two consecutive middle school girls’ City League championships were honored at a banquet organized by their coach and boosters. by Malik Vincent For New Pittsburgh Courier Losing was more difficult than winning for the Obama Academy Middle School girls basketball team. They’ve won 20 in a row in league play over the past two years.But victories on the court aren’t the only thing that measures the success of the program that won a boys league during the Ammons Recreation Center’s winter league. “We just wanted to be able to show the girls that we are very proud of their accomplishments,” Obama head coach Ruth Walker said.To top it all off, the team walked away with its second consecutive middle school girls’ City League title when they defeated Sterrett, 46-19, in front of a packed Allderdice gym.The March 16 event was held at the Harmer House in Cheswick, PA. There were close to 70 guests in attendance. Each of them received a door prize and gifts that were sponsored by Walker and other donors.People might have been complaining about the amount of things that we poured on them that night,” Walker added. “It was so much!”Nick Futules, co-owner of the venue, is the District 7 representative of Allegheny County Council. He served as the keynote speaker and head chef of the event.“I wore many hats that evening,” Futules said. “But it was truly worthwhile for the sake of these talented youth.”Futules is an experienced restaurant owner and studied Culinary Arts in college.He, along with county council representative Bill Robinson who represents the District 10 area, served as the event’s sponsors. They made sure that each of the Obama players, coaches, and team managers received a proclamation from the County for their overall success.“We had to take some time out to acknowledge not only their achievement on the court, but also off,” Futules added. “Academics are number one for us at county council.”Walker also honored her kids for academic achievement.“I’d say like 98 percent of our kids were recognized for having made the honor roll or better,” she said.Each girl that participated received a unique-looking silver trophy with a female basketball player that is dribbling over an orange-colored basketball.The Obama parents, in gratitude, presented Coach Walker with a plaque that was purple for the team’s color, recognizing all of her accomplishments.“The effort that Coach Walker put into this event and that she puts into the team, as a whole, is phenomenal,” Futules said.In addition to candy bar party favors that contained three photographs, the eighth-grade players received personalized ‘memory books’. And along with the County proclamations, the Pittsburgh Public Schools provided certificates of achievement for the girls, who also received varsity-style letters.“These girls are so worthy of all of this,” Walker said. “They have done so much. And in this, we hope that they realize that they will continue to gain their rewards if they continue this level of commitment to success over their lives.”“These efforts don’t go unnoticed by these youth,” Futules said. “These are memories that can last a lifetime. I don’t think they’ll ever forget it.”(Malik Vincent can be reached at [email protected] or on Twitter @malikvincent.)last_img read more
