Asia round-up: Indonesia overcomes funding challenges

In the face of an uncertain economic outlook, including rising inflation caused by oil price rises and the scrapping of heavy fuel subsidies that forced rises in local interest rates, the Indonesian government has raised $1.5 billion of bonds. The government’s steps actually helped the issue since international investors felt that the administration of president Yudhoyono is finally getting to grips with the problems facing the country. The government issued $900 million 10-year bonds at a yield of 7.625% and $600 million 30-year bonds at a yield of 8.625%, respectively 329 and 406 basis points over US treasuries.
