The establishment of SOE holding Mining Industry, he added, is also the answer to face the challenges of global competition is getting stronger and faster.
"The existence of holding state-owned mining company BUMN will provide great benefits, certainly not only for holding companies and holding member companies, but also for the government and society," said Rini
