AUD to IDR Exchange Rate
Ah, Indonesia: home to world’s largest Muslim population, the most islands of any nation, and a volcano that spews blue gas. True.
What influences the AUD/IDR exchange rate?
Bank Indonesia’s goal is to maintain the IDR’s stability, specifically in terms of prices for services and goods reflected in inflation. It adopted the inflation targeting framework in 2005, and keeping inflation at the government recommended level is their primary monetary policy objective.1
As both the Indonesian and Australian economies rely heavily on commodity exports for driving GDP, the AUD/IDR exchange rate may fluctuate based on the value of the top commodities for each country. For Indonesia these commodities include coal briquettes, palm oil, gas and petroleum while for Australia primary exports are iron ore, coal, gas and gold.
