This morning I would like to check [food] prices as I did at other markets in Malang Regency. I find out the prices are very good here. I see that the price of chicken meat can be 34 thousand rupiahs. The price of shallot is 26 thousand rupiahs. It is cheap here. I think the prices are good because most of the commodities is produced in Malang Regency. Regarding inflation, it is under control and the supply is good.

How about the scarcity of LPG gas, Pak? What is the cause?

President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

The LPG gas supply, particularly subsidized gas, is indeed limited in the field and it is only for underprivileged community. It should be underlined. So, regarding the scarcity of LPG gas, Minister of SMEs will answer because Pertamina is under his control. Just ask him.
