Govt to review rice imports policy
JAKARTA (Antara): Minister of Agriculture Anton Apriyanto said on Sunday that the government would decide whether to extend the current ban on rice imports next week.

"There will be a meeting among related ministers such as the Minister of Trade Mari Pangestu to discuss the import ban policy next week," Anton said.

The agriculture ministry predicted Indonesia would again become self-sufficient in rice this year, Anton said.

"God willing, we can become self-sufficiency in rice so there will be no need to import rice to meet domestic demand," he said.

He said that the policy to ban imports would also be aimed at propping up the price of local rice.

The ministry has said unhusked rice production this year would be estimated to reach 53 million tons, more or less similar to last year.

The amount is equivalent to 32 million tons of husked rice, while Indonesia's annual consumption is projected to be 31 million tons.(*)
