On 12 January 2014, the Indonesian Government imposed an effective ban on the export of some unprocessed mineral ores, incorporating some last minute amendments aimed at easing the ban in respect of some products. Further information is available in the Reed Smith Client Alerts dated 10 January and 13 January 2014.

The 10 January alert also contains comments on a July 2013 decision of the District Court of West Jakarta on the Indonesian “Language Law”, which has gained a lot of recent attention.
