Govt Regulation Draft on Agricultural Cluster: Commodity Import Ban

Summary

The government will control imports of strategic food commodities, such as wheat, tapioca, and soybeans through a derivative regulation of Law No. 11/2020 on job creation. The Secretary-General of the Agriculture Ministry, Momon Rusmono, confirmed that it would be included in one of the government regulation drafts (RPP) derived from the Job Creation Law’s agricultural cluster.

He explained that controlling food imports is crucial to secure domestic production, maintaining the farmers’ welfare, and maintaining supplies. "We hope they will enter the draft," he said. Meanwhile, the House of Representatives’ deputy chairman of Commission IV, Budi Djiwandono, argued that the government had to formulate a regulation on food product exports and imports first by taking into account the interests and welfare of farmers and consumers.
