Journalists
Sir, [your opinion] regarding the visit to this Mendenrejo Market, Sir?

Presiden Republik Indonesia (Joko Widodo)
Alright, this Mendenrejo Market in Kradenan district, Blora regency, is located in a remote area so we need to also check the prices. Earlier, I checked, the prices are good, even the  price of shallots is only Rp30,000, while yesterday I saw it at Rp38,000, Rp40,000. Here, it is only Rp30,000. I see that the price of cooking oil is also good from Rp14,000 to Rp15,000. I believe that the prices here are still good, even though this is a remote area

Journalists
What about food, regarding the preparation for [the month of] fasting, Sir?

Presiden Republik Indonesia (Joko Widodo)
That is what we want to check whether the stocks are available, whether the supplies are available. What are the prices.

Journalists
Seeing the condition of this market, do you have any plan to rehabilitate this market?

Presiden Republik Indonesia (Joko Widodo)
It is still in a good condition. But, no problem, I will order Minister of Public Works to do it.

Journalists
Thank you, Sir.
