Speaker of the Regional Representative Council (DPD) A.A. LaNyalla Mahmud Mattalitti has urged the East Java provincial government to facilitate the export of banana commodities. The government should get ready to prepare regulations and production infrastructure.
According to the speaker, East Java Province had become the largest area that produced bananas in Indonesia in 2020, with production totaling over 2.6 million tons. According to Mattalitti, the figure showed that some 32 percent of the national banana production came from East Java.
Mattalitti emphasized that for realizing the export market of bananas, the government should support it through regulations and simple procedures that can boost production, so as to make it easier for banana farmers and business players.
