The Business Competition Supervisory Commission (KPPU) examined the allegation of cartel practices in the motorcycle business and on February 2017 decided that PT Yamaha Indonesia Motor Manufacturing (YIMM) and PT Astra Honda Motor (AHM) were guilty. AHM decided to file for an objection, but on December 5, 2017, the North Jakarta District Court decided in favor of KPPU and upheld the previous decision. In another case, the dispute between PT Tirta Fresindo Jaya (TFJ), a manufacturer of Bottled Drinking Water (AMDK) under the Le Minerale brand against two of their rivals—PT Tirta Investama (TI is producer of Aqua) and PT Balina Agung Perkasa (BAP is a distributor of Aqua)—will end soon. The KPPU is scheduled to read their decision next week. Some believe that the upcoming decision is KPPU’s chance to prove their neutrality. To subscribe please click here
