"The cooperation with the local government is able to reduce the price fluctuation, I am really monitored for availability and price control," said Trade Minister Enggartiasto Lukita Sunday (25/3/2018) quoted from Antara.

Enggartiasto added, in the near future it immediately invites business actors and stakeholders to prepare measures to anticipate a spike in the price of basic materials before the entrance of Ramadan.

In addition, further Enggartiasto, provincial and regency / municipal governments are expected to increase the number of registered distributors in their area through the Sign of Business Entity of Distribution of Basic Goods (TDPUD), and encourage the reporting of stock by registered distributor according to the regulation of Permendag 20/2017.

Then, the local government record the stock and consumption in each region to determine the condition of surplus or deficit of goods of basic needs.

The recording form will be integrated in the SIPAP application that is performed to ensure the recording is offline.
