The government bond market in Indonesia has been growing in the recent years. Their growth has been hastened by the fact that the Indonesian government is willing to develop the debt markets as a financial device.
The retail market in Indonesia for the sovereign bonds are also in the first stage of their development but the national government is making efforts to make the market infrastructure, the regulatory framework as well as the trading and clearing systems better than they presently are.
