JAKARTA (Reuters) - Indonesia's central bank is "ready to ease" monetary policy, subject to data in September, governor Agus Martowardojo told reporters on Friday.

"We see a possibility of monetary easing but subject to data and timing that we are confident with. We are ready to ease, but need to see data in September," he said.

Indonesia's inflation eased to below 3 percent for the first time since 2009 in August.
