- Prepare recommendations for the Highest Retail Price (HET) for types of staple goods and other important goods.
- Utilizing suboptimal assets to support stabilization programs and reducing price disparities (eg utilization of warehouses, cold storage, agricultural facilities, ships, and commodity processing machines).
- Availability of Supply
- Increasing the production of strategic foods, especially eggs, chilies, fish and sago (i.e. expansion of production centers, improvement of trade systems, cropping cycles, infrastructure and human resources).
- Increasing the quality and food reserves in the fisheries sector (eg providing clean water facilities, optimizing the use of cold storage, providing electricity infrastructure, and improving processing processes).
- Compiling a map of the leading commodities and food potential in the district / city.
III. Smooth Distribution
- Optimizing the role of BUMD as an extension of the government, a.l. improve the trade system chain, increase cooperation between regions and become strategic partners of business actors,
- Improve coordination and cooperation between agencies, especially in overcoming the flow of loading and unloading of goods during long holidays.
- Making efforts to provide transportation subsidies, especially in remote areas that have limited access.
- Effective Communication
- Planning and implementing regular and incidental market operations in the district / city
- Disseminate information on the availability of supplies to the public through mass media, electronic media and other media.
- Conducting education and outreach to business actors in order to improve institutions to gain access to finance (both from banks and other access to finance). **
