“Some components of our fertilizer raw materials are still imported. So, we don’t have self-sufficiency,” President Jokowi explained.

Therefore, President Jokowi greatly appreciates and values the strenuous efforts in building the ammonium nitrate industry in East Kalimantan.

Certainly, this is important because 21 percent of ammonium nitrate is still imported.

“With the construction of the East Kalimantan Ammonium Nitrate Factory, it will reduce imports from 21 percent to 8 percent. It means that we still import 13 percent,” the President informed.

The Head of State is very pleased that this factory is completed so that it can increase the raw materials for fertilizer production in Indonesia.

“I hope the completion of the East Kalimantan Ammonium Nitrate industry can make the food industry more independent, stand on its own feet, and the investment of IDR1.2 trillion will not be in vain,” the President conveyed.

“I ask that this expansion be continued so that we can substitute imported goods. Not only concerning ammonium nitrate, but also other imported goods should be produced domestically,” the Head of State concluded.
