The President said he wanted to ensure rice production and harvesting activities so that it could fulfill public needs all over Indonesia.

The Head of State added that if the stock were available and could be correctly calculated, rice imports were not necessary anymore, adding that the calculation must be fixed as it concerns dietary needs of all people.

“This is a very good result and later I will follow up with the IPB to develop it in greater quantity so that our food security, our food sovereignty can be achieved without importing rice from other countries,” the President remarked.

After having a discussion with local farmers, President Jokowi further said that it also is necessary to provide agricultural equipment and machinery to optimize cultivating rice fields.
