INDUSTRY.co.id - Coordinating Minister for Political, Legal, and Security Affairs Mahfud MD confirmed that there is more than Rp110 trillion of state receivables to be restored from Bank Indonesia Liquidity Support (BLBI) funds.

“Based on the Government’s calculation that taking into account foreign exchange rate, stock index composite, and the current value of collateral assets, the total state receivables from BLBI funds is determined at Rp110,454,809,645,467,” he said after leading a limited meeting on Task Force for Handling of State’s Collection Rights of BLBI Funds, at the office of the Coordinating Ministry for Political, Legal, and Security Affairs, Jakarta, on Thursday (15/4).

Mahfud explained that out of the total Rp110.454 trillion of state receivables, Rp101 trillion is in form of cash, while more than Rp8 trillion is in form of potential assets.

“There are also foreign currency savings, which exchange rate is fluctuated, and stock,” he added.
