Indonesia is a dominant player in the global nickel mining industry and had 21 million tonnes (Mt) of nickel reserves. Indonesia stood as the largest nickel producer in the world, with a volume of 560Kt (thousand tonnes) in 2018. In 2018, country exported 19.7Mt of nickel ore and concentrates, up by 304.8% from 2017. This increase was due to the removal of an export ban on nickel in 2017, which was imposed in 2014. The government has again announced an advance of ban by 2020 instead of 2022. Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources Republic of Indonesia (MEMR) and the Directorate General of Mineral and Coal governs the country's mining industry.
