TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Marwanto Harjowiryono, Director General of Treasury at the Finance Ministry said that the government has ended its partnership with JP Morgan Chase Bank N.A. "The decision was made in accordance with a letter issued by the Finance Minister on November 17, 2016, to JP Morgan," Marwanto said on Monday evening, January 2, 2017.

Marwanto said that the decision was also made based on the result of a meeting between the Directorate of State Treasury Management, Director General of Treasury, and JP Morgan. The meeting was held on December 1, 2016.
