JAKARTA, March 6 Indonesia's foreign exchange
reserves rose to $102 billion by the end of February, Bank
Indonesia Governor Agus Martowardojo said on Thursday, compared
with $100.65 billion the previous month.
It was the highest level since massive currency intervention
last June when offshore investors dumped Indonesian assets on
worries over the U.S. Fed's stimulus tapering.
The rupiah is Asian's best-performing currency so far this
year, backed by improving economic indicators, but was the worst
last year when the current account deficit hit a record 4.4
percent of gross domestic product in the second quarter of 2013.
