Indonesia to Expand Shrimp Farming in East Nusa Tenggara


Indonesian Finance Minister (Menkeu) Sri Mulyani Indrawati revealed the government's plan to establish a massive shrimp farm in Waingapu, East Nusa Tenggara (NTT), after the inauguration of a 60-hectare shrimp farming area (BUBK) in Kebumen, Central Java.

"The government plans to build more BUBKs, such as in Waingapu in NTT, with a total area of 1,800 hectares," the post on her Instagram account @smindrawati reads on Monday.
