Japan Bilateral Swap Agreement

The Central Bank also signed an agreement on the settlement of the local currency with the Central Bank of Thailand and has had a positive impact on bilateral trade between the two countries.

This cooperation includes bilateral U.S. dollar swap and repurchase agreements, both signed in November 2018. TOKYO: Japan and Malaysia on Friday sealed a mutual currency exchange agreement that allows each side to provide the other side with up to $3 billion to avert a financial crisis, according to the Japanese treasury. The agreement, which allows both authorities to exchange their local currencies for U.S. dollars, aims to protect each other in times of currency turbulence such as speculative attacks. Update on 14.04.2020: India is discussing a bilateral sweatshirt line with the United States.

The bilateral currency exchange agreement will also increase India`s foreign exchange reserves (FOREX). India`s FOREX reserves have fallen since the peak of $426.08 billion in April 2018. This is because the RBI has sold reserves of U.S. dollars to limit the depreciation of rupees. With the Swea-exchange agreement, India will have an additional $75 billion in foreign capital whenever it takes. It will reduce the costs of accessing foreign capital.

Given the growing economic and financial ties between Thailand and Japan, the Central Bank`s additional liquidity channel through this swap agreement will strengthen the stability of the financial system and promote the use of local currencies. Together with Negara Malaysia Bank, BI has signed the bilateral local currency swap agreement, which will allow the two central banks to access each other`s foreign currency liquidity if necessary.
