INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - Pros and cons of rice imports still occur. Paramadina University political observer Hendri Satrio also spoke about the real condition of the field. According to him, the rise in rice prices of how much time ago is more indicative of the game of importers or rice mafia.

"This is evident when the harvest time comes, the price of rice back down, even though rice imports have not yet entered Indonesia," he said through a broadcast issued by the Ministry of Agriculture.

Hendri continued, the price of rice in Cipinang Rice Market (PIBC) currently decreased by Rp 200-Rp 300. Grain prices fell to Rp 800 during the harvest and before rice imports from Thailand and Vietnam entered. He asserted, it is less cautious Ministry of Commerce (Kemendag) in deciding rice import policy.

He considered the condition should be explained by the Minister of Trade Enggarsito Lukita. Enggar must also be able to build a smooth communication with Bulog and Kementan.

"Once in a while it is necessary for the Minister of Trade to come to the field to see the condition and welfare of the farmers, so it is not necessarily too easy to issue recommendations to import," said in
