An Overview of The Indonesian economy
Indonesia can look forward to an easier 2014, as the nation’s economic fundamentals looks set to improve across the board. GDP is expected to grow 5.8 percent and the current deficit should narrow as the trade balance recovers. Inflation should drop to safer levels with no further fuel-price hikes for the year. A lower Rupiah, tighter credit conditions and slower GDP growth will make Indonesia’s economy less dependent on domestic consumption, foreign investment and commodity exports.
The Indonesian population continues to expand and it is predicted that the boom may possibly hit 280 million in the year 2030. As such, there exists a very real problem to feed the exponential increases in population growth.
The Pressing Problem
The government’s target of national production in the seafood sector in 2014 is 19.6 million tons, growing at a rate of 20% a year. This excludes the 6.5 million tons of seaweed production which does not require conditioning. In the beef sector (meat), the government is targeting 580 thousand tons of beef and poultry (chicken and poultry) 3.7 million tons. This translates to an increase of 7-10 % a year. The drive to increase production aims to reduce imports substantially. However, the national cold storage capacity in 2013 is only 7.2 million tons of seafood products and 398 thousand tons for beef and 1.9 million tons for poultry. The capacity growth is only 10 % a year. Clearly, there is a MISMATCH issue of capacity of storage versus production.
The Solution and An Opportunity
International Indonesia Seafood and Meat Conference and Expo
Focusing on Cold Connection (IISM) is conceived and planned to facilitate the meat and seafood industries as well as the cold chain system of storage and refrigeration facilities. This event is tailored specific to buyers and suppliers of fresh, frozen, packaged and value added seafood and meat products, equipment and services. It provides a platform of exchange and bridges access from interested buyers to ready suppliers from all over the world in the seafood and meat industries along with the cold connection hardware.
