Possible effect on Zaozhuang garlic exports

Indonesia plans to launch new garlic regulations

Recently, the Indonesian government has been revising Article 11 in the regulations of the Ministry of Agriculture, "advice regarding the import of horticultural products", in order to promote a self-sufficient garlic plan. It will be implemented on 1 July of this year. This act will affect the garlic producers in Zaozhuang, who export their produce to Indonesia.

This regulation mainly touches upon two areas: firstly, it brings back the garlic import quota. New regulations require that an importer of garlic has to request a quota from the Indonesian Ministry of Agriculture. They can only produce garlic based on this quota. Secondly, it raises the access threshold. Apart from implementing a quota, the exporting areas have to be approved by the Good Agricultural Practices (GAP), and the exported garlic has to be inspected by the Societe Generale de Surveillance (SGS, a third party inspection organization).
