  1. Bank Indonesia (BI) will announce BI Rate today at 2.00 pm. We expect BI to leave the rate unchanged following a strengthening IDR  due to easing external risks. Domestic inflation also eased in April as key commodity prices cools with increasing supply. From the monetary tools, we still see BI is maintaining a contractionary stance, making a rate change unnecessary at this point. (Economic Research - BRIDS)
