Malaysia’s international reserves edge up to US$102.3 billion as of Feb 15

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia’s gross international reserves rose to US$102.3 billion as of Feb 15 from US$102.1 billion on Jan 31, the central bank said on Friday.

The reserves were sufficient to finance 7.3 months of retained imports, and are equivalent to the amount needed to cover short-term external debt, said Bank Negara Malaysia.
