Indonesian Agri Ministry Seeks Higher Import Duty on Rice
Asia Pulse
JAKARTA, The Agriculture Ministry said the duty of Rp430 (0.05 US cents) on a kilo of imported rice is not sufficient to safeguard the interests of farmers.
It is time for the government to raise the duty to a minimum of Rp510, Achmad Suryana, a Ministry official said on Tuesday.
Suryana, speaking ahead of the World Food Day 2003 celebration in Jakarta, said the government must control rice imports during harvest time to stem a glut of imported rice into the domestic market.
As part of efforts to protect farm products, the government will enforce a new rice policy next year, he said.
Asked to comment on the World Trade Organization (WTO) summit in Cancun, Mexico, which failed to reach an agreement on farm issues, he said the goverment will continue to protect domestic farm products.
"We will be more protective. The general policy of the Agriculture Ministry is protecting and promoting farm products," he said.
Without such protection and promotion, Indonesia will not be able to compete with other countries which provide heavy subsidies to their farmers.
