The third-largest contributor to Indonesia’s national economy behind the oil and gas sector and industrial manufacturing, Indonesia’s agricultural sector maintains a crucial role in supplying the nation’s domestic market as well as providing an attractive supply of exports. As the country’s economy continues to expand and diversify, the agriculture industry is shifting away from being an exporter of principally raw material towards being a value-added base for global agro-industry. An integral part of the social and economic fabric, the agriculture sector should continue to play a role in the economy even as it continues to transform into an industry with a more value-added downstream-oriented focus.
