We welcome you to the 10th edition of the PwC Indonesia "Mining in Indonesia: Investment and Taxation Guide" released in May 2018, which highlights the key regulatory and taxation considerations for investors in the Indonesian mining sector - a sector which continues to be a key contributor to Indonesian economic growth.
Since the new Mining Law was introduced in 2009 various implementing regulations, and subsequent amendments, have been issued by the Government in pursuing the goals of the Mining Law. In 2018 the Government has sought to reduce the overall bureaucracy by simplifying current regulations with an aim of attracting more investment. However, this comes at the same time as some new restrictive regulations on coal pricing and exports, giving investors some cause for concern. Time will tell whether improvements in the investment climate are sufficient to attract the new investment required, particularly in exploration and reserve replacement.
We hope this 10th edition of our Guide proves to be a useful resource to all those interested in the Indonesian mining industry as they consider their investment opportunities in the sector. Please contact PwC Indonesia's Mining specialists to discuss further.
