Indonesia says bauxite export ban to proceed as scheduled in June 2023

  Indonesia says bauxite export ban to proceed as scheduled in June 2023 JAKARTA (Reuters) -Indonesia will ban exports of bauxite, the main ore source of aluminium, starting from June next year to encourage domestic processing of the material, President Joko Widodo announced on Wednesday. Indonesia is among the world's biggest suppliers of bauxite with China a key buyer. The timing of the bauxite export ban is in line with Indonesia's current mining law. Jokowi, as the president is widely known, had earlier on Wednesday told an economic forum that Indonesia would be announcing a ban on exports of a commodity, without disclosing which, or a timeframe for implementation.

'I am sorry to say that because I am not someone who is ready to give up, but I think I did my best,' she said.

'I am really qualified, I was a manage before and I graduated an MBA in marketing.'

Madeleine said she went to events to do networking but didn't find anyone who could help her find work.

'Life is pretty expensive if you don't have a job,' she said.

She added one man offered to help her - but told her she wouldn't have an answer 'tomorrow'.

'I can't afford living here in a big town if I don't have income,' she said.

She has decided to 'Go back to Bali' where life is 'cheaper and easier'.

'I can apply online for jobs the same I did here,' she said.

She said she 'doesn't have a crush' on Melbourne adding that it could be because she is French but when she has travelled other places she has made friends instantly.

Bali-The former SAT.1 "Breakfast TV" presenter Amira Tröger (27) is currently taking a break in Bali.

'Here I think it was complicated, the weather was complicated and no one is willing to give me a chance,' she said.

She said she just wanted the opportunity to transform all of the information she learned at university into hands-on experience but needs a job to get that done.

People suggested she try for a working holiday visa but she said she is too old to apply for the program.

Madeleine believes potential employers didn't respond because she needs a sponsorship visa as she isn't an Australian resident.

'I think there not so much company which are willing to sponsor you, so it is complicated,' she said.

But others said she could have been applying at the wrong time of year.
