Import quota

 On 26 September 2016, the Indonesian Minister of Trade announced in a press conference that Indonesia would abolish its import quota regime for cattle. Instead, importers will be required to import a share of the cattle for breeding purposes. It remains unclear what the ratio for this will be as the Minister mentioned in the same press release a rate of 20% as well as "1 out of 6".
On the following day, the Trade Ministry announced in another press conference a strategy to import enough breeding stock so that Indonesia can achieve self-sufficiency within 9 years. Similar plans in the past, however, have failed. On this occasion, the Indonesian Feedlotter Association criticized the move in the media saying that Indonesia did not have enough room for the slaughterstock if the breeding regulations would be implemented.
Despite the coverage of the announcements in the media, the Trade Ministry has not yet released any official press releases on this matter.
