Philippine Environment, Natural Resources and Energy Minister Abdulraof Abdul Macacua said that nickel mining operations across four unspecified sites in the Philippines' Tawi Tawi region will be halted indefinitely to facilitate the implementation of the country's Bangsamoro Responsible Mining law. The suspension will further reduce the country’s declining nickel output, which fell by 16.6% year on year in 2018 to 19.5 million tonnes.

The southern Philippines region was responsible for 90% of the 2.66 million wet metric tonnes of high-grade nickel ore exported to China in the first half of 2018 and accounted for 27% of the total 15.8 million wmt of nickel ore exported there over the same period.
