Indonesia - Nickel Ore Exports Banned

29 October 2019

Members should note that the ban has been brought forward with immediate effect. As reported widely in the international press, the measures are in response to a rush of exports to try to beat the January 2020 deadline: the nickel miners association and government have jointly agreed to halt exports immediately.
