JAKARTA, Nov 24 (Reuters) - Indonesia may stop tin exports in 2024 as part of efforts to attract investment into the resource processing industry, President Joko Widodo told a central bank's annual gathering with financial stakeholders on Wednesday.

The president also reiterated the government may stop allowing exports of bauxite next year and copper ore in 2023.

Efforts to stop exports of raw commodities and attract investment in downstream industries will improve Indonesia's trade and current account balances, he said.
