Indonesia

Indonesia was a $2.6 billion market for U.S. exports of agricultural products in fiscal year 2013 and ranks as our ninth-largest market worldwide.

While bilateral trade continues to grow, Indonesia has increasingly adopted trade restrictive measures in an attempt to fulfill food self-sufficiency goals. Restrictions on agricultural imports have already caused shortages of some commodities, including beef and certain fruits and vegetables, and has exacerbated already-high prices. In May 2013, the Indonesian government reacted to recent high soybean prices by instituting price controls and an import permit system tied to domestic procurement.
