ILDEX Indonesia 2017 Internationalising the livestock market in one of the fastest growing countries in Asia. Indonesia is considered as the largest economy in Southeast Asia. The middle class is set to become a prominent force in the country. This is due not only to their huge demographic, but also to their strong income growth prospects. Investors will find in Indonesia the ideal balance between booming demand for livestock products and an abundance of agricultural and natural resources. As Southeast Asia’s largest country (and the world’s fourth most populous at about 250 million people), Indonesia has witnessed a major boom in demand for livestock products such as red meat, milk, eggs and beef and cattle. Of which the Indonesian Ministry of Agriculture is more focused on strengthening at the moment. The Indonesian Minister of Agriculture commented, “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 realise an independent country in terms of the fulfilment of livestock products, and at the same time, to improve the welfare of farmers.” The Minister of Trade also remarked that Indonesia should be self-sufficient on livestock and be able to export these products. He said, “The welfare of farmers is rising, and the poverty rate is decreasing. That is the governments target.” VNU Exhibitions Asia Pacific and Federasi Masyarakat Perunggasan Indonesia together announced investment platform entitled, ‘ILDEX Indonesia 2017’.

Mrs Panadda Atthakowit, Head of Competence Center of Livestock of VNEAP explained that, “Indonesia represents 40 percent of ASEAN’s total population and middle-income economies. It also represents a growing domestic and regional consumer base.
