INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - The Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) decided no more development of Steam Power Plant (Coal), especially in Java. This tight control cannot be separated from the Government's commitment in guarding climate change in Indonesia.

"In Java, there is no auction, commissioning or signing for coal-fired power plant, we do not want to aggravate air pollution," said Jonan as speaker at event of Indonesia Miner - Mineral Processing 2018 in Jakarta, Wednesday (11/4/2018).

Jonan emphasized that environmental issues are the main focus that must be synergized with ESDM sector policy. "Currently we are focusing on environmental issues, nobody can avoid the issue," said Jonan.

Even Jonan will provide strict sanctions if there are companies and individuals who try to violate environmental issues.

Therefore, mining companies are required to adjust mining activities with environmental issues. "Please review the environmental issues in your company," said Jonan.

Jonan again reminded the management of mineral resources is no longer just used as a commodity trade. "We are not just pursuing royalty revenue, but aimed at development capital," said Jonan.

In order to achieve this, the Government will guarantee to the mining investors to maintain regulatory stability. "I understand, the main concern of investors is the stability of the regulation," said Jonan.
