Indonesia's central bank kept policy rates steady on Wednesday, saying the decision was consistent with efforts to stabilise the rupiah exchange rate and ensure inflation remains within target this year.

Bank Indonesia (BI) left unchanged its benchmark 7-day reverse repurchase rate at 6.00%, where it has been since October, as unanimously expected by economists surveyed by Reuters.

BI also kept its overnight deposit and lending facility rates at 5.25% and 6.75%, respectively.
