"Liquidity in the country's economy (broad money (M2) circulation) in July was supported by narrow money (M1) and quasi-money," Executive Director of the BI Communication Department Onny Widjanarko noted in a statement here on Monday.
M1 rose 13.1 percent yoy in July, from 8.2 percent yoy a month earlier, driven by currency outside banks and rupiah demand deposits, he pointed out.
Quasi-money growth was recorded at 9.7 percent yoy in July as compared to 8.1 percent yoy in the previous month, he noted.
Meanwhile, non-equity securities recorded slower growth, at 4.9 percent yoy in July, from 31.4 percent yoy a month ago.
The increase in M2 in July was caused by a 17.6-percent rise in net foreign assets as compared to 12.1 percent a month before, he remarked.
The amount of loans channelled in July grew stable at 1.0 percent yoy, he added.
The government's finances grew positively, albeit at a slow pace, as mirrored by the growth of net claims on the central government that slowed down to 40.8 percent in July, from 43.2 percent a month earlier.
