Government Launches Coffee Street Map Book Drives Productivity

By : Herry Barus And Aldo Bella Putra | Friday, April 27 2018 - 19:30 IWST - Jakarta - The government launched a coffee roadmap book to encourage the productivity of Indonesian coffee commodities to compete with similar products from other countries at the global level.

Coordinating Minister for Economic Affairs Nasution Darmin Nasution in launching the coffee road map book in Jakarta, Thursday (26/4/2018) states the publication of this book is very important because the productivity of coffee from Indonesia is still limited.

According to him, the productivity of coffee plantations in Indonesia which currently reaches 500 kilograms per hectare is still inferior to Vietnam which has recorded production of 2.7 million tons per hectare.

In fact, the plantation area in Indonesia is 1.2 million hectares, compared with 630 thousand hectares of Vietnam.

"With the plantation area reaching 1.2 million hectares, Indonesia has not maximized the productivity of coffee land," said Darmin.

To that end, the government publishes a coffee roadmap entitled The Coffee Policy Direction Indonesia Facing Challenges of Competition, Climate Change, and World Coffee Conditions.

Indonesia's short-term, medium-term and long-term coffee strategy issuance is carried out to drive deeper concerns by developing coffee seeds well.

In addition, in order to have the proper seeding of coffee for certain species in accordance with the conditions of the region in Indonesia and improve the productivity of coffee.

This needs to be done because Indonesia is still considered not have a clear strategy towards the direction of development of the right coffee in order to improve production.

In fact, so far the results of Indonesia’s coffee production rank fourth largest in the world after Brazil, Vietnam and Colombia.

In addition, the growth rate of Indonesian coffee consumption per year has increased by 6.3 percent in the last five years.

Overall, the compilation of this book is conducted to gather comprehensive information on the coffee condition domestically and globally.

In this roadmap book also explore about the ins and outs of the world of coffee from upstream to downstream until emerging strategies that need to be done in order to develop the potential of Indonesian coffee.

Other information presented in this book is the potential, challenges, and short-to-long government policy strategies in response to the development of coffee commodities.

The presence of this strategy is expected to illustrate the true condition of coffee commodities in Indonesia to compete in the future.
