"This effort is the government's commitment in pursuing self-sufficiency of cattle production, targeted by Indonesian President Joko Widodo, to be reached in 2026. This effort is also to realize an independent country in terms of the fulfillment of livestock products, and at the same time, to improve the welfare of farmers," said the Minister of Agriculture. The Minister of Trade also stated that Indonesia should be self-sufficient on livestock and be able to export these products. "The welfare of farmers is rising, and the poverty rate is decreasing. That is the government's target," he said.
