Abstract

This is the final report of a research on food security and markets in Indonesia. The research is part of a wider study on food security and markets covering the Southeast Asian countries of Thailand, Vietnam, the Philippines, and Indonesia. The primary objective of this NGO-based research is to examine the interaction between the state and the private sector in the process of rice trading in Indonesia. The research is aimed at generating policy proposals for promoting the development of sustainable and dynamic rice-producing sectors capable of improving food security and markets in the country. Data for this report was drawn primarily from field investigation, in-depth interviews and desk analyses. Field investigation was conducted in four Indonesian provinces, namely, West Java, East Java, Lampung and DKI Jakarta, from May to June 1999. Collector traders, rice milling units, wholesalers, retailers and farmers in the four provinces were interviewed directly, using a traditional questionnaire. Likewise were policy-makers and government officers, researchers and university faculty members, on whom were used an open-ended questionnaire. This report is organized in the following manner. Chapter 2 reviews the general concept and application of food security and markets, including price stabilization policies and rice trading structures. Chapter 3 examines recent developments in the Indonesian rice economy, covering trends in rice production and consumption, movements of domestic and border prices, import and buffer stock arguments, and regional disparities in rice security. Chapter 4 examines the role of the private sector in rice trading, with emphasis on rice trading map and patterns of transaction. An analysis of marketing margins and economic and marketing efficiencies is used as a basis for arriving at new investment decisions. Chapter 5 discusses the role of the state in rice trading, focusing on price stabilization policies, the state procurement system, special market operations and general food security issues. Regional cases of state intervention broaden the discussion of incentive systems, barriers to entry and policy implications on farmers’ welfare. Chapter 6 is a synthesis of sound and market- friendly policies in rice trading. The discussion includes potential areas of policy intervention and the workability of a market mechanism, and the future policy reforms on food security and rice trading. Chapter 7 closes the report with an overall summary of the research results and proposals for promoting the development of sustainable and dynamic rice-producing sectors in post-crisis Indonesia.
