12 August 2015

Minister for Agriculture, Barnaby Joyce, has welcomed confirmed reports that the Indonesian Ministry of Trade plans to issue additional import permits for 50,000 head of slaughter cattle for Quarter 3, 2015. 

It is vitally important for security of supply from Australia and affordable food prices for Indonesia that this long established and mutually beneficial trade be maintained. 

I thank the Indonesian Minister for Trade for this re-establishment of more substantial numbers and look forward to continuing this strong trade for the betterment of both of our nations.
