Navy to ensure Indonesian export ban

The Indonesian authorities are deploying the country's navy in order to ensure compliance with the the ban against exporting unprocessed commodities in ports and dry bulk terminals.

The Indonesian export ban on unprocessed commodities came into force on January 12th, which means that it is no longer possible for mining companies operating in Indonesia to send enormous amounts of nickel and aluminum ore out of the country without having it refined first. According to the country's government the ban has been introduced as a measure to ensure more work and a better economy in the big and mineral-rich Asian country.

In an attempt to prevent the ming companies from breaking the ban and exporting crude ore regardless, the country's government is now intensifying the effort by deploying naval vessels and crews to control the ports from where the commodities are shipped, according to the Jakarta Post.
