– Publish What You Pay (PWYP) Indonesia says the government should not re-discuss the relaxation of concentrate exports. The current government should focus on strict supervision of the ports used by mineral entrepreneurs, which export illegal raw materials.

The Indonesian PWYP Communications Manager, Agung Budiono, said mineral mining entrepreneurs often export illegal raw materials (illegally) through ‘mouse’ ports in several regions in Indonesia.

“We remind the government to exercise strict monitoring of ‘rat’ ports. This is often used by mineral mining entrepreneurs who secretly export raw materials, “said Agung in Tjikini Lima, Jakarta, on Sunday, September 25, 2016.

According to him, the government must improve supervision of the ports that are the exit for mineral and coal so that there will be no more illegal mineral mining exports. Then, build and develop port aspects that are integrated with IT standards.

In addition, the aspect of law enforcement against companies proven to be carrying out illegal exports must be upheld.

“By ensuring the progress of all smelter development, intense coordination with ministries related to the development of downstream industries, including mitigation of environmental and social problems due to the development of downstream industries,” he explained. (ase)
