President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

I am here at the Tugu market, Depok, for checking the prices of basic commodities in the last weeks. I see all is good. Shallots’ price is good, eggs’ price goes down, and garlics’ price is stable, chicken’s price is also stable at IDR32,000 – 35,000, but the rice’s price has not decreased yet. Earlier, I had ordered the Logistic Bureau (Bulog) to drop [some supplies] into this market and conduct market operation.

The supply is not a problem. Supply is not a problem.

Journalist:

Are there any complaints from traders during the inspection, Sir?

President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

Nothing, nothing, nothing.

Nothing, nothing, nothing. Prices are good, prices are stable. Those who shop also made no complaints.
