Bank Negara Malaysia said the detailed breakdown of Malaysia’s international reserves under the International Monetary Fund’s Special Data Dissemination Standard (IMF SDDS) format indicates that as at end-January 2017, the country’s reserves remained usable.

The Central Bank said the official reserve assets amounted to US$94.98 billion, while other foreign currency assets were at US$348.6 million as at end-January 2017.

The central bank said for the next 12 months, the pre-determined short-term outflows of foreign currency loans arising from scheduled repayment of external borrowings by the government would amount to US$247.5 million.
