As we know, the export-import process is one of the major processes in trade and is quite busy in world trade, including in Indonesia. Besides being famous for having abundant natural sources, Indonesia is also a tropical country with fertile soil so that many plants can grow well in Indonesia, so it is not surprising that Indonesia’s natural sources are also used as an export-import.
Of the many types of natural sources owned, one of the well-known and most sought after is the result of agriculture and plantations. Indeed as mentioned above, the fertility of the land owned by Indonesia is one of the reasons why plants and spices can grow well in Indonesia. Many foreign traders are looking for agricultural products and spices in Indonesia. Not only foreign traders, local traders also take advantage of this to be used as imported materials abroad. Some examples of agricultural products that are often used as an Export-Import process in Indonesia are as follows:
Indonesian Export Commodities in Agriculture, this is one of Indonesia’s export commodities originating from agricultural products
Palm oil is one of Indonesia’s export commodities originating from agricultural products. It should be noted that Indonesia currently dominates the world palm oil market. The reason is that Indonesia is able to produce up to 31 million tons of palm oil per year. Apart from the planned moratorium on oil palm plantations initiated by the government, Indonesia had the intention of doubling oil palm production until 2030.
Other agricultural products that are also included in the list of Indonesian export commodities are natural rubber. The current annual production of natural rubber in Indonesia can reach up to 3.2 million tons. This figure is recorded to be one of the second largest in the world after Thailand. Most of the rubber commodities in this country come from Kalimantan and Sumatra.
There are about 744 million tons of rice produced in the world, and almost 10 percent of it comes from Indonesia. Indonesia’s rice production reaches around 70.7 million tons. However, the current rice production capacity can only meet domestic demand. So the government needs to increase production capacity, for example by opening new land and developing rice variants that are much better and more effective.
Kalimantan is known as one of the regions in Indonesia that is rich in coal, so it is not surprising that Kalimantan brings a lot of foreign exchange rain for the country. Almost every year, Indonesia produces coal equivalent to 281 million tons of oil. This amount reaches 7.2 percent of the total world production. Now India has replaced China as the largest importer of Indonesian coal.
Cocoa is basically a mainstay product of Sumatra and Sulawesi, which are also included as the prima donna of Indonesia’s commodities. Currently, cocoa production has succeeded in placing Indonesia as the third largest producer in the world. The reason is that Indonesia is able to produce 712,231 tons of cocoa.
Located on the lips of the Pacific Ring of Fire, Indonesia is one of the countries known to have abundant geothermal energy. According to the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources, the geothermal potential in Indonesia reaches around 28 thousand MW. Now most of the geothermal energy in Indonesia is produced by the Gunung Salak PLTP.
Known as one of the third countries in the world that succeeded in producing the largest coffee beans after Brazil and Vietnam. However, when it comes to the effectiveness of its own production, it turns out that Indonesia is lagging behind the two countries. Now, coffee bean production in Indonesia is only limited to 800 kg per hectare. When compared with Brazil which reached 2,000 kg per hectare and Vietnam 1,500 kg per hectare.
Several countries are currently importing tobacco from Indonesia. Among the largest importing countries are Belgium, 992.7 tons, America 2,827,3 tons, the Netherlands, Sri Lanka 1,086 tons, and the Dominican Republic 753.3 tons.
As we know, Indonesia is also one of the countries rich in ornamental plant commodities. There are at least 173 types of ornamental plants that grow well in Indonesia. Namely there are aglaonema flowers, tillandsia, polia science, and Caloncoe which are exported to Europe.
Finally, there is seaweed and other types of algae which are also one of the agricultural products exported by Indonesia. However, market demand fluctuates and fluctuates. The country that imports the most seaweed from Indonesia is China with 148,452 tons.
Porang has become a new leading export commodity and is being intensively cultivated by farmers. For a high selling value, of course, the income potential of farmers is also large. And the demand in the export market is increasing.
