The following communication, dated 18 November 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 again like to reiterate its commitment to implementing the recommendations and rulings of the DSB in these disputes.

 

On measure 18, as updated in previous DSB meetings, Indonesia has removed all Articles in the relevant Laws that were found inconsistent with the 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 adjustments in complying to the recommendations and rulings of the DSB have been carried out through the 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.
