INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta- The government and Indonesian tea commodity stakeholders carry out an advocacy mission entitled Indonesia Trade Trade Mission (ITTM) to Europe in an effort to improve the market access of these commodities.

Director General of Foreign Trade at the Ministry of Trade Oke Nurwan said that the delegation of the Indonesian tea advocacy mission will visit Hamburg, London and Brussels with a message to minimize the obstacles to Indonesia's tea export to the EU on 3-9 December 2017.

"The mission of tea advocacy is expected to minimize the obstacles of Indonesia's tea export to the European Union, so that the export of Indonesian tea products in this region is re-triumphant," Oke said in a written statement received on Sunday (3/12/2017)

The Indonesian delegation has several agendas during its advocacy mission, one of which is to carry out technical consultations with EU tea stakeholders, Tea & Herbal Infusion Europe (THIE). In addition, it is also a review of research cooperation of tea samples with Eurofins Scientific laboratories in Hamburg, Germany.

In addition, market share and market preferences will be discussed with tea buyers / stakeholders in London, England. The delegation will also visit and consult the Directorate General for Health and Food Safety (DG SANTE) of the European Commission in Brussels, Belgium.

In this working visit, the Indonesian delegation will present scientific evidence which is the result of the scientific study of the Center for Quality Testing of Goods of the Ministry of Trade with researchers from Bandung Institute of Technology (ITB).

The results show that the anthraquinone residual (AQ) tolerable threshold (AQ) of humans is 0.2 mg / kg taking into account the risk analysis, more loosely than that established by the European Commission.

"The Indonesian government has successfully completed a scientific research proving that the residual AQ threshold of 0.02 mg / kg of dried tea leaves in Regulation of the European Commission Number 1146/2014 is too tight," Oke said.
