Indonesian Trade Minister Rachmat Gobel announced that the government offers flexibility for those exporters that are unable to comply with the new L/C rule yet. Gobel said when exporters obtain an exclusion from the Indonesian Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry or the Indonesian Agriculture Ministry, they can be excluded temporarily from the obligation in order to give them time to adjust and revise contracts that were signed before Trade Ministry Regulation No. 04/2015 on L/C Mandatory Use was issued.
