Summary:

Amid the Covid-19 pandemic that weakens the global economy, 15 countries have finally signed the Comprehensive Regional Economic Pact (RCEP), which officially establishes it as the world's largest trade pact. The signing of the RCEP is believed to be the commitment of its members to restore the world economy and reignite global trade spirit.

For Indonesia, RCEP has a great potential in opening up new markets and easing the entry of Foreign Direct Investment, especially in industries that develop e-commerce and industrial revolution 4.0. Hence, the government needs to prioritize structural and policy adjustments to increase national competitiveness and boost foreign and domestic investment.

CIPS Senior Fellow, who is also the RCEP negotiation leader, Donna Gultom, shares her perspective and future policy steps for Indonesia to maximize this agreement's benefit in the latest CIPS policy summary.

Summary:

Dalam beberapa tahun terakhir, di Indonesia menunjukkan tren yang berlawanan antara pasokan dan permintaan beras. Konsumsi beras diperkirakan akan meningkat seiring dengan bertambahnya jumlah populasi penduduk, tetapi di sisi lain angka produksi beras dalam negeri mengalami penurunan. Selain itu, terdapat permasalahan harga beras yang mahal sebagai akibat dari inefisiensi sistem distribusi beras dalam negeri. Terlepas dari upaya Perum Bulog untuk memastikan ketahanan pangan dalam rantai pasok domestik, masih terdapat banyak tantangan di hulu dan hilir industri beras.

Membatasi jumlah pemain yang terlibat dalam rantai pasok beras bukan merupakan solusi terbaik untuk mengatasi permasalahan tersebut. Dalam makalah kebijakan ini, kami merekomendasikan dua perbaikan yang dapat dilakukan, yakni: mendesain ulang peran Perum Bulog untuk memastikan efektivitas rantai pasok beras domestik, melonggarkan pembatasan impor dan mendorong persaingan impor untuk mengambil keuntungan dari harga beras global yang lebih rendah.

Policy Paper No. 32 - The Government’s Role in the Indonesian Rice Supply Chain

Summary:

In recent years, Indonesia has seen an opposite trend between rice supply and demand. It is predicted that rice consumption is likely to increase along with the growing population, yet rice production has declined. On top of that, the domestic rice distribution system's inefficiencies are regarded as one of the prominent reasons for high rice consumer prices in Indonesia. Despite Bulog's effort to ensure food security in the domestic supply chain, challenges still exist on upstream and downstream levels.

Regulating the number of players in the distribution and processing chain is not an advisable option. In this policy paper, we recommend reforming two keys that can be considered: to redesign Bulog's role to ensure the domestic rice supply chain's efficacy and to ease import restrictions to encourage import competition to benefit from lower global rice prices.
