Indonesian Ministry Rejects Proposal to Halt Rice Imports
Asia Pulse
JAKARTA, Indonesia's Agriculture Ministry has rejected Industry and Trade Minister Rini Suwandi's proposal to stop the import of rice for three months this year.
"(Rini's) proposal could be approved but could not be implemented this year as it would make farmers incur losses," the ministry's director general for the marketing of agricultural products, Delima Hasri Azahari, said after the meeting yesterday.
The proposal will protect the importers but not the farmers, Delima said. However, he noted that it could be assessed further for possible implementation next year.
To control the volume of rice imports, she said the government could increase the import duty and combat rice smuggling.
Delima said the Agriculture Ministry has proposed that the import duty for rice be raised from Rp430 per kg to Rp510 per kg.
On Tuesday, Rini proposed to the government that this year's import of rice be stopped for three months, due to the fall in market price of unhusked rice and a glut of imported rice in the domestic market.
