Importer licenses in Indonesia

KPMG observation

For an API-U, the new regulation provides more flexibility in importing goods in accordance with the license. For an API-P, after the license expires, the API-P must consider other means to import certain industrial and complementary goods and may need to consider changing its existing business model.
