The following communication, dated 16 September 2021, from the delegation of Indonesia to the Chairperson of the Dispute Settlement Body, is circulated pursuant to Article 21.6 of the DSU.
Indonesia submits this report in accordance with the Article 21.6 of the Understanding on Rules and Procedures Governing the Settlement of Disputes (DSU).
Indonesia would like to reiterate its commitment to implementing the recommendations and ruling of the DSB in these disputes.
On measure 18, as reported in previous DSB meetings, Indonesia has removed all Articles in the relevant Laws that were found to be inconsistent with WTO rules through the enactment of Law No.11/2020 on Job Creation.
With respect to measure 1–17, Indonesia would like to reassure that significant adjustment in complying to the recommendations and rulings of the DSB have been performed through amendments to the relevant MoA and MoT Regulations. Those adjustments also include the removal of disputed measures, inter alia, harvest period restriction, import realization requirements, six‑months harvest requirement, and reference price.
Indonesia commits to engaging with New Zealand and the United States and reaffirms its commitment to implementing the recommendations and rulings of the DSB in these disputes.
