Two ministers have said that state-owned electricity company PLN had secured enough coal to meet its power generation needs, addressing the underlying issue behind Indonesia’s coal export ban that has rattled global markets. “Right now, there seems to be no problem [with supplies]; the emergency is over,” Coordinating Maritime Affairs and Investment Minister Luhut Pandjaitan told reporters in Jakarta on Thursday. Luhut had met with coal mining companies and several ministries on Thursday to review the coal export ban, but had not made a decision on the matter.
