INDUSTRY.co.id - Yogyakarta, - Trade Minister Enggartiasto Lukita said that the type of corn to be imported for domestic industry needs is not found in Indonesia.

"Imported corn is for the needs of the industry which is not produced in Indonesia," he said after opening the 21th Meeting of The Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) in Yogyakarta on Tuesday (6/2/2018)

According Enggartiasto, the government will not issue an import policy if the corn needed by the industrial sector can indeed be found in Indonesia.

"If they are not given yes they moved the factory because it (imported corn) is not here," he said.

In addition, continued Enggar, imported maize is only for industrial sector. Imported corn, firmly Enggar, is not intended for other sectors such as for animal feed.

"I have never issued a permit for corn imports for livestock feeds, which never existed, which is from the past until now the corn is not produced in Indonesia and from year to year for the needs of the industry.On the outside, not one corn we import, said the Minister of Trade.

Previously, the Ministry of Commerce issued Maize Import Permit (PI) of 171,660 tons for domestic industry needs for five companies owning Producer Importer Identification Number (API-P).

Corn imported by companies owning API-P can only be used as raw material or auxiliary materials for their own processing needs and prohibited to be traded or transferred to other parties.

In order to obtain such import approval, the company owner of API-P must apply electronically by enclosing API-P, and Goods Import Declaration (PIB).
