Indonesian granite supply back, Khaw Boon Wan blogs

Indonesia has allowed the supply of granite, which it disrupted in January, to be exported to Singapore.

"Since early March, we have seen a steady resumption of granite supply from Indonesia," National Development Minister Khaw Boon Wan said in a blog post on Thursday.

"We have always required all importers to have a small supply from distant regional sources, even during normal times ... Supplies from other sources are coming in readily."

He also said that no one had applied to draw down from the national granite stockpile in March and the Government will accordingly "suspend the application for granite stockpile release" from March 14 onwards.
