OAC claims that the Department of trade has issued an import license (SPI) based on the recommendation of the Ministry of agriculture to enable the cigarette industry to absorb the domestic production of tobacco. In the future, the Ministry of agriculture will arrange to absorb the quantity of domestic tobacco and send out the percentage of the import of the cigarette industry.

The reason for the restrictions on tobacco imports by the Ministry of trade is due to the considerable amount of tobacco imports each year. According to the data of the Central Statistical Agency (BPS), the import of tobacco reached 50 thousand and 700 tons or $252 million 600 thousand in the first half of this year. The import of tobacco this year was significantly increased by 34.84% over the same period of 37 thousand tons or 241 million 600 thousand dollars in the same period last year.

The president of AMTI (Budiyono), President of the AMTI, hopes that the new policy will be parallel to the government’s willingness to improve the quality of farmers’ tobacco. They always have reasons and demands for quality standards if they are only required to absorb domestic tobacco. “ this is the concern of the government. Instead of helping the farmers’ good intentions, it is difficult for farmers to sell tobacco.

Since then, the price of domestically produced tobacco is determined by planting area and species. Therefore, the price of tobacco is 60 thousand to 100 thousand shields per kilogram or higher. The average tobacco price per kilogram is 80 thousand shields per kilogram.
