In a statement Friday, BNM said official reserve assets amounted to US$ 128.123 million, while other foreign currency assets amounted to US$ 4.512 million.
For the next 12 months, the central bank said the predetermined short-term outflows of foreign currency loans would amount to US$ 1.504 million arising from scheduled repayments of external borrowings by the government.
In line with the practice adopted since April 2006, the data excludes projected foreign currency inflows arising from interest income and the drawdown of project loans amounting to US$ 3.157 million in the next 12 months, BNM said.
“Long forward positions amounted to US$ 1.4 million,” BNM said.
It said the only contingent short-term net drain on foreign currency assets are government guarantees of foreign debt due within one year, amounting to US$ 228.0 million.
