Indonesia

Indonesia is the most populous Southeast Asian nation and is the largest market in the region for U.S. agricultural exports, which totaled $3 billion in fiscal year 2014. Indonesia ranks as the United States' eighth-largest market worldwide, with top U.S. agricultural exports including soybeans, wheat, cotton, dairy, and feeds and fodder.

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.
