On 17 April 2019, Indonesia’s 190-million odd voters head to the polls to elect a president, national parliament and regional legislatures. One of the most important policy areas for the mining and metals sector is what stance the next administration and wider body politic will adopt in regard to a mineral ore export ban that is slated to come into effect in 2022. With that in mind, Verisk Maplecroft has teamed up with its sister company Wood Mackenzie to analyse how Indonesia’s plan may affect its exports of bauxite specifically, and the ripple effect this may have across the global aluminium market if implemented.
