At the meeting, Asahi Chemical asked about the supply of raw materials to support its production process in Indonesia, he said.
As the ministry responsible for developing industries, the industry ministry will assure the smooth supply of raw materials including salts for the production of PVC.
“At the meeting, Asahi also touched on the continuity of salt supplies. So, the industry ministry is the only agency issuing a recommendation in connection with the continuity of salt supplies, so we assured them of the availability of raw materials” he said.
