JAKARTA -- The Indonesian government has drawn up a policy framework to fully promote environment-friendly cars, such as electric and hybrid vehicles. The key pillar of the new policy is to introduce tax breaks for low-carbon emission cars, with the goal of reducing emissions by 29% by 2030.

According to the Ministry of Industry, the government plans to make the tax exemption and other plans public by the end of the year, under a plan that will probably be called the "Low Carbon Emission Vehicle" program.
