In a sudden move, Indonesia lifted anti-dumping measure on Philippine bananas and non-tariff measure on onions/shallots and even urged its ASEAN colleague to immediately restart exporting these agricultural products to Indonesia.

This was conveyed by Indonesian Trade Minister Enggartiasto Lukita during a bilateral meeting with Trade and Industry Secretary Ramon M. Lopez and Agriculture Secretary Emmanuel Piñol, where Indonesian official urged Filipino exporters to start exporting immediately these agricultural products to his country.

During the meeting, the Indonesian Minister, who was accompanied by Indonesian Ambassador to the Philippines Sinyo Harry Sarundajang, said that these products can now be exported because the Indonesian government has already recognized Davao Region, Northern Mindanao, and SOCCSKSARGEN as pest free areas for banana production. Indonesia has also recognized Nueva Ecija, Ilocos, and Mindoro as pest-free for shallot/onion production.
