Indonesia Coal Ban Still in Place despite Miners’ Plea


Uncertainty on coal exports remains as the Indonesian government postponed a meeting with coal mining companies on Wednesday, as numerous coal vessels remained in limbo as they waited to see whether the coal export ban would be lifted or not. Previously, the government planned to review the ban on Wednesday after meeting mining company representatives in the morning. Top economies in the region relying on Indonesian coal are waiting patiently for the decision.

Reuters reported that officials at the Indonesian Coal Miners Association (ICMA) said a planned meeting with trade minister Muhammad Lutfi had not taken place. They did not say why it did not happen and had no idea when the talks would occur in the future. On the other hand, ministry officials declined to comment on the matter.
