Press Statement of President of the Republic of Indonesia after Visiting Sambonggede Market, Tuban Regency, East Java Province, April 6, 2023
I observe that the prices are really good here, such as Rp28,000 for chickens, Rp30,000 for shallots, and Rp28-29,000 for chillies. Compared to other regencies and provinces, the prices here are the cheapest. Perhaps, the production is abundant in Tuban.
You can ask Mr. Regent why they are so cheap. I believe this is due to the abundant production. Earlier Madam Governor also said that [the region] has an abundant supply of chickens. Therefore, the price is cheaper than that of other cities, that of other regions. That is good.
On the ground, we see that some prices have actually dropped.
