"Advising on this programme for the fourth successive year demonstrates our continuing strength in sovereign debt offerings and our depth of experience and capabilities in Islamic finance and green finance," said White & Case partner Debashis Dey, who co-led the Firm's deal team, "all the more so given the updates made to the programme structure to align with the latest market standards for international sukuk issuances and enable the broadest possible distribution for Indonesia."

The offering involved the issuance of a tranche of US$1.75 billion sukuk due 2027 and a tranche of US$1.5 billion green sukuk due 2032. The proceeds of the green sukuk will be used exclusively to finance/refinance expenditures directly related to ‘Eligible SDGs Expenditures with Green and Blue focus' under the Republic of Indonesia's new SDGs Government Securities Framework.
