The Indonesian Agriculture Minister, Syahrul Yasin Limpo, has reassured the public that the country's rice supply will be sufficient to meet the demands of its citizens until Eid al-Fitr this year. The Minister stated this after a visit to the PT Food Station Tjipinang Jaya rice

storehouse, where he confirmed that the stocks were enough after thorough calculations. The Main Director of the Food Station, Pamrihadi Wiraryo, added that there was a high level of optimism regarding the current rice stocks and that the harvest period in South Sumatra was ongoing, which would last until April. Wiraryo also highlighted the steady decline in rice

prices, with the IR 643 rice price dropping from Rp10,375 in the past two weeks to Rp10,175 as of Tuesday. He stated that he was confident that the rice stock was enough and expressed appreciation for the Agriculture Ministry's efforts in distributing rice this year.
