Jokowi: Indonesia Might Lose in WTO Nickel Export Ban Lawsuit


President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo stands on firm ground to face lawsuits by European Union and other countries to the World Trade Organization (WTO) over the policy of banning nickel ore exports. In fact, Jokowi said it does not matter if Indonesia loses at the WTO following the mass complaints.

According to him, industrial downstream processing will improve governance and added-value to domestic mineral products.
