"The cumulative value of Indonesia's exports from January to November 2017 reached 153.9 billion US dollars or an increase of 17.16 percent compared to the same period in 2016," said Head of BPS Suhariyanto in Jakarta, Friday (15/12/2017)

Suhariyanto explained, from the total increase, non-oil exports reached 139.68 billion US dollars, an increase of 16.89 percent.

While the largest increase of non-oil exports in November to October occurred in animal / vegetable fats and oils of 152.3 million dollars (8.04 percent).

Related coffee, previously proclaimed Indonesia has the potential to take advantage of lifestyle changes among Chinese youth through coffee as one of the non-oil commodity exports superior.

"Chinese teenagers are now beginning to drink coffee as a lifestyle change from the previous generation who like to drink tea," said Consul General of Indonesia in Shanghai Siti Nugraha Mauludiah, Tuesday (12/12).

According to her, coffee has started to become a lifestyle trend in mainland China. Even Starbucks, a global networked coffee retailer, recently opened a new outlet in Shanghai, which is touted as the largest outlet in the United States.
