President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

I, along with Governor [of West Java] Ridwan Kamil, inspected [food] prices ahead of Christmas and New Year. I am pleased that there is a decrease in prices of several foods. Frozen meat price increased from Rp85,000 to Rp95,000 (per kilo), but the local meat price remains stable. Shallot price increased by Rp2,000, while garlic price and egg price decreased. Prices of several food decreased, while one or two kinds increased. I notice that all is under control, well managed.

Journalist

How about the food price’s condition at national level, Sir? Is it the same with West Java province?

President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

Yes, it is almost the same. Not only this market we have visited. Indeed, it is almost the same. For example, chili price decreased by Rp30,000. The price is usually at Rp60,000. It decreased by Rp30,000. It is a good condition ahead of Christmas and New Year. However, rice price increased slightly.
