INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - Perum Bulog President Director Budi Waseso said the imported rice storage warehouse was not only handled by the Bulog but also all related stakeholders, including the Ministry of Trade.

"Do not deal with warehousing, Bulog affairs, I should be assisted. Pak Buwas needs a warehouse, this is so much, and these are the data. That is, if the pay business is my business," Budi Waseso said when met at the Bulog Jakarta Office on Wednesday (9/19/2018)

Budi Waseso, who is familiarly called Buwas, revealed that Bulog is committed to Indonesia not requiring rice imports because currently the stock of rice reserves in the Bulog warehouse has reached 2.4 million tons.

This amount does not include imported rice which will enter in October amounting to 400 thousand tons so that the total stock will be 2.8 million tons, or 2.7 million tons if reduced by the needs of 100 thousand tons of Prosperous Rice (Rastra).

Buwas assesses that currently the warehouses managed by Bulog are full of capacity. Therefore, he argued that the Ministry of Trade Office must be ready to become a storage warehouse for imported rice.

"It's at the Ministry of Trade's warehouse. It's already committed, the office is ready to be used as a warehouse," he said.

Previously, the Minister of Trade Enggartiasto Lukita told media staff that the balancing of imported and warehouse rice was entirely the responsibility of Bulog, because the import agreement had been made on the Rakortas decision involving the Coordinating Ministry for Economic Affairs, Ministry of Trade, Ministry of Trade and Bulog.

"That is the matter of the Bulog. Part of the Government, the import approval from the Coordinating Minister, Minister of Trade, Minister of Agriculture, National Logistics Agency, has the permit. Who is assigned to import? Bulog, yes," said Enggar.
