JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com - Indonesia's Deputy Finance Minister Suahasil Nazara reiterated that Indonesia would continue the development of a downstream processing industry for natural resources to create new sources for economic growth.

Indonesia is determined to continue the process despite its defeat in the World Trade Organization's (WTO's) Dispute Settlement Body against the European Union, which challenged Indonesia's prohibition of nickel ore export.

"We will continue and push for the downstream processing. Will [Indonesia's defeat in WTO] stop this downstreaming? It will not," State News Antara quoted Suahasil at the Wealth Wisdom 2022 event Tuesday, Nov. 29.

Indonesia's defeat in the WTO would instead bolster the government's resolve to advance with the downstream processing, he said.

The deputy minister said that Indonesia, through negotiators appointed on its behalf, would continue to fight for its interests in the downstream processing efforts before the global community.

Indonesia's vast natural resource potential could become a new source of economic growth if managed for the best interests of the people, including through downstream processing, he said.

"What is important is that we continue pushing for downstreaming and we will also manage the sector," Suahasil said.
