Jakarta (B2B) - Asosiasi Pengusaha Bumiputera Nusantara Indonesia (Asprindo) diminta Menteri Pertanian RI Andi Amran Sulaiman mendukung peningkatan ekspor komoditas pertanian Indonesia ke mancanegara.

"Asprindo saya minta mengutamakan ekspor komoditas pertanian khususnya ayam, telur, jagung, kopi dan lada. Itu harus jadi prioritas dan pemerintah akan mendukung dan mendorong pencapaian ekspor tersebut," kata Mentan Amran Sulaiman usai bertemu Ketua Umum Asprindo, Jose Rizal di Jakarta, Kamis (31/5).

Menurut Mentan, pemerintah akan mendukung para pengusaha dan eksportir yang menopang perekonomian nasional dengan mengutamakan ekspor ketimbang impor pangan dari mancanegara.

"Ini harus menjadi prioritas dan akan terus didorong pemerintah," kata Mentan.
