Status Report regarding implementation of
the dsb recommendations and rulings
by Indonesia


The following communication, dated 19 June 2023, 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 a status report regarding the implementation of recommendations and rulings of the DSB in these disputes in accordance with Article 21.6 of the DSU.

Indonesia continues to reiterate its commitment to comply with the DSB's recommendations and rulings through revocation of the measures at issue.

On 31 March 2023, Indonesia issued Law No. 6/2023 on the Stipulation of the Government Regulation in lieu of Law No. 2/2022 on Job Creation. The enactment of this regulation affirms the removal of the measure at issue, particularly those related to self-sufficiency (Measure 18).

On that note, Indonesia also continues to highlight the repeal of relevant Minister of Agriculture and Minister of Trade's Regulations administering measure 1–17, including harvest period restriction, import realization requirement, six-months harvest requirement, reference price, and domestic purchase requirement.

Apart from Indonesia's compliance with the DSB's recommendations and rulings and to respond complainants' interests on Commodity Balance, Indonesia would again highlight the purpose of this framework, which is to serve as a tool mechanism for providing comprehensive, accurate, and reliable information through the integrated national database system. To that end, Indonesia remains convinced that Commodity Balance will streamline the import approval procedures, enhance the ease of doing business, as well as facilitate trade in a transparent manner.

Indonesia remains ready to continue its engagement with New Zealand and the United States with the aim of resolving these disputes.
