Dollar Betah at Rp 14.000, Reasonable?

- United States dollar currency (US) yesterday had penetrated the level of Rp 14. 200. The government is not worried because believes that the rupiah exchange rate has found a new balance point.

Is the dollar exchange rate against the rupiah in the range of Rp 14. 000 there is a reasonable level?

Economist Bank Permata Josua Pardede view, determine the point of balance of currency values ​​tend to be subjective. Because the desired business world and market participants is stability.

"The new balance is subjective and if we look at it is not the level, the important thing is the rupiah is stable," he said to Tuesday (22). / 5/2018).
Josua explains, there are 3 factors causing the rupiah continues to weaken. First global negative sentiment, that the Fed will raise interest rates to make foreign funds out of developing countries like Indonesia.

Indonesia's trade balance deficit of US $ 1.63 billion in April 2018 with details of exports of US $ 14.47 billion and imports US $ 16.09 billion.

Then last there is a seasonal sentiment about the rampant dividend distribution of the companies. It boosted demand for US dollars domestically for dividend payout to foreign investors.

With reference to these three factors, Josua believes that the current rupiah exchange rate does not reflect the true economic fundament of Indonesia. That's how he believes the rupiah should be stronger than the current position.

"Maybe Mr. Luhut illustrates that people do not need to panic," added Josua.
Josua believes that if the dividend payout season has been missed, and global sentiment has begun to ease then the rupiah could strengthen again. He believes the true value of rupiah is below the level of Rp 14. 000.

Agus Marto Push Rp 1,000 to Rp 1 in End of Term

- Zero in rupiah is valued too much when compared to other countries. Therefore, redenomination or simplification of money value is called to be a solution for efficiency.

The Governor of Bank Indonesia (BI) Agus Martowardojo explained that currently the rupiah has too much nominal.

"Now in Indonesia US $ 1 is five digits rupiah in the range of Rp 13. 800-14.200. So if there is a depreciation of 1% that there is a weakening of Rp 140," said Agus at the Parliament Building, Jakarta, Tuesday (5/22/2018).
At the end of his term, Agus expects Commission XI to push the redenominasi currency plan that reduces zero in rupiah.

"If you can encourage the redenomination of the currency, so its zero is reduced, it's not sanering," he said.

Agus explained that since Indonesia's independence, the government has indeed done sanering or withholding money. Sanering breaks the currency value in half and this is different from redenomination.

"Sanering is still an imprint on the community, how to cut rupiah, but not with redenominasi, not like that," he said.
BI has indeed submitted several redenomination plans to enter the national legislation program (Prolegnas) but always failed and lost with other programs.

Currently Agus calls the US dollar exchange rate recorded in the range of Rp 14. 180, to May depreciate 1.94%. This is still better than the Thai exchange rate of 2.1%, India 2.5% and Turkey 12%.

Trains and Ship Logistics Shoppers Lack of Interest

- Logistics truckloaded more or overload is still widely found in the field.In fact, the existence of these 'obesity' trucks has led to more inefficiencies than the cost efficiency of logistics to be achieved by transporting more goods.

The government itself has been trying to provide a choice of logistical routes other than land, including through rail and ship.However, these two alternative pathways are less attractive to entrepreneurs.

For the train line, the choice is less desirable because it costs 1.5 times a landline.Transport observer Djoko Setijowarno said the 10 percent tax imposed on goods made the line less attractive to entrepreneurs.

"If the land is not effective anymore, have to move to the train.But the train is not expensive, because of the tax.Previously PT KAI also pengennya cheap.Not expensive, "he said when contacted on Tuesday (5/22/2018).
Proven from the realization of the number of freight vehicles using trains last year.PT Kereta Api Indonesia notes that the realization of total freight transport in 2017 is not reached, of which 39.9 million of the target is only 36 million.

As for the marine vessel line, since late 2017 the government has prepared long-range roro boats for the subsidized Jakarta-Surabaya route to reduce the burden of the Pantura road.But this path is also less desirable because of being hit by non technical constraints such as the cost of levies that burden logistics costs.

"Implementation is not too much, but at least reduce the burden.Because now we are still trying to offer to the public, what kind of response, "he said.

" The response is quite good, but there are non technical issues such as the rather high fee levy in Tanjung Priok.Maybe I have to count again if possible in Tanjung Priok the retribution fee is lowered.Because if the current conditions, the entrance is quite large cost, so the influence is large enough for the subsidy given to the owner of the ship itself, "he added.

Auditors Must Be Independent, Do not Reduce Financial Statements

- PT Bursa Efek Indonesia (BEI) proposes that the auditor of the company's financial statements come from an independent.Auditors of financial statements should also be certified.

IDX President Director Tito Sulistio said his side has spoken to the Ikatan Akutan Indonesia (IAI) regarding the proposal to be implemented soon.

"I propose to make an initiative and have talked with IAI, auditors who provide financial statements if it can be certified, exam.After that they must be independent, should not be affiliated, "he said at BEI Building, Jakarta, Tuesday (22/05/2018).

Tito said the proposal if applied can be anticipated early in order to avoid modification cheats financial statements.So no investors are the victims.

"It was the earliest of the financial statements.Can try special company listed first, "he added.

Tito looked at sometimes there are parties who do audits affiliated with the company management.It opens up the possibility of cheating.

"The key to how the financial statements in the company are signed by the auditor by the person in charge correctly.Therefore, sometimes the auditor is in Indonesia, the grandfather of the president commissioner is, the father of the president director is, "he said.

The proposal also refers to the default of interest rate of short-term debt or medium term notes (MTN) owned by PT Sunprima Nusantara Financing or SNP Finance.The investors felt cheated because MTN SNP Finance previously received a sleek rating.
Pefindo is the one who gave idA / stable rating in March 2018.Even that rating has been raised from previous idA- / stable.

But from that case Tito looked at Pefindo not completely wrong.Because as a rating agency, Pefindo only underlies the financial statements presented by the auditor.

"Rating base of audited financial statements.So it's not his job Pefindo again to check again his financial statements.Pefindo receives the company's projection financial report, it does not check the depth, "he said.
I do not blame or not, but it is Pefindo's duty.If sorted, Pefindo make from the auditor.Hence the auditor should be the first defense of the capital market industry, "added Tito.

Just for information, SNP Finance on 9 and 14 May 2018 suffered a default on the MTN issued.Total unpaid interest obligations totaled Rp 6.75 billion from two MTN series.

The exchange rate is beginning to be felt when the US dollar is still in the range of Rp 13. 000-an until now become Rp 14. 000-an.

Thus, traders must recalculate the selling price of their jersey. Or take another alternative by cutting profits in order to maintain the selling price of jersey so as not left by customers.

"He (jersey price) ngikutin exchange rate From Rp 13. 000, can still profit, but since the US dollar Rp 14. 000-14.200 he began to nombok make the difference in the rupiah exchange rate," he said.

Solar Subsidy Plus How much? This is Sri Mulyani said

- The government plans to add diesel subsidies by 2018.The Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) proposed that the subsidized diesel subsidy be Rp 1. 500 / liter.

Currently the government has subsidized fuel type of diesel Rp 500 / liter.The ESDM Ministry also proposed a subsidy of Rp 1,000 / liter, then the total subsidy of diesel would be Rp 1. 500 / liter.

Responding to that, Finance Minister Sri Mulyani Indrawati said all decisions on the discourse of additional diesel subsidies were decided in the performance report of the first semester of 2018 to the House of Representatives (DPR).

"Now the State Budget Law stipulates Rp 500 per liter which is not enough.Therefore, whether in this case the additional Rp 1,000 or the amount to be determined later, is being discussed.Later we will report to the council through the first semester report, "said Sri Mulyani after the socialization of PP No. 14 of 2018, Jakarta, Tuesday (22/05/2018)
The increase of subsidy allocation, said Sri Mulyani, the impact of world oil price movements that have exceeded the assumption limit in the 2018 APBN.
The difference between the assumptions in the State Budget is very large, from US $ 48 per barrel now even reached above US $ 80 per barrel,
The high oil prices directly become a burden for SOEs in this case PT Pertamina (Persero) and PT PLN (Persero).Because, these two companies are very dependent on the red plate with oil.The oil used is also imported so that the cost is higher than usual.

"So we will see the cost structure of those who are under pressure because oil imports are already at high prices.While subsidized prices are unchanged.We are currently calculating the balance sheet of PLN and Pertamina, the need to keep this state-owned company healthy and sound, "he explained.
However, how much will the government decide on the number of diesel subsidies will be decided when delivering APBN performance in the first half of 2018.

"From the results of our study, which loads more than 100 passing vehicles, 25% of them break the tonnage to 100%, so there are 25 out of 100 trucks that break the tonnage to 100%. we touch first to lowered goods, "he said.

What's The Difference Of The Economy Of 2018 With The Crisis Of 1998? This is Sri Mulyani said

- Finance Minister Sri Mulyani Indrawati believes that Indonesia's economy is currently very different from the condition 20 years ago or during the economic crisis of 1997-1998.

Sri Mulyani says that the most visible difference is that the government now has independent Bank Indonesia (BI) and the Financial Services Authority (OJK), which is the independent financial sector oversight body.

"Different at all.First, from the side of legislation where 20 years ago before the BI crisis was not independent.We do not have what is called an independent financial sector supervisory institution, "said Sri Mulyani after the socialization of PP No. 14 of 2018 at the Ministry of Finance, Central Jakarta, Tuesday (22/5/2018).

Differences in economic conditions are also evident from the government managing the state budget.According to Sri Mulyani, currently the government embraces the budget deficit and it is recorded in a transparent manner.While in times of economic crisis, the state budget deficit can not be known.

"So, there is a State Finance Law that provides signs on how much the amount of deficit and debt.We also have KPK.So, from the side of 20 years ago, much can be done misappropriation or bad governance, can run widely, "he said.

Sri Mulyani disclosed, BI became a monetary authority that has the task of maintaining stability rupiah exchange rate and inflation.BI has a mix of policies that in times of economic crisis are not owned, as well as OJK.
"Governance is more transparent, many of these institutions (banks) already, they do publication of the overall balance sheet.From the side it is very different. we are also flexible, meaning that when the economy, our rupiah can strengthen.If it is being impacted as it is today, then just like many other currencies, will experience pressure or correction, "he said.

" However, our currency correction although flexible, still in a stable medium-long term.We maintain that we, the government, BI, OJK can ensure the financial sector remains healthy, Indonesia can grow but, and BI can stabilize if necessary.It's a different mechanism from 20 years ago, "he concluded.
