The third exhibition of ILDEX Indonesia is expected to improve the quality of livestock industry in Indonesia. Nino Gruettke, Managing Director of VNU Exhibitions Asia Pacific, Co., Ltd. said that Asian countries that have rapid economic growth and monitored by global investors are Philippines, Singapore, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, and upon those countries there is Indonesia. “That’s why we put our focus specifically in this country,” he explained.

Nino said that in addition to more international (this exhibition is followed by 250 leading companies from 27 countries plus pavilion from China and South Korea.), it will also feature three industrial zones, covering feeding and animal health; feed milling and agricultural equipment; and genetic, breeding, and processing.

“The number of exhibitors has increased by 22 percent from the previous edition and now 80 percent of booths are sold out. At this moment of ILDEX, several companies increased their exhibition area by 50 percent, as well as many new companies. Our target is to have 8,000 visitors present at this exhibition,” Nino said.

He explained that there are many benefits to be gained for the participants as well as visitors in this edition of ILDEX. This exhibition is not only offering the latest livestock innovations for the upstream to the downstream sector, but ILDEX Indonesia 2017 also offers great potential in terms of business. “Many international companies are joining, both new and those who have participated in the last edition,” he said.

Director General of Livestock and Animal Heatlh, I Ketut Diarmita, represented by Fadjar Sumping Tjatur Rasa, said in his welcome speech that he is glad to see ILDEX Indonesia 2017. Livestock sub-sectors still plays an important role for the development process in Indonesia, especially in rural areas. “Livestock contributes 1.62 percent to the national gross domestic product in 2016. In addition, the livestock sub-sector role in providing animal food consumption tends to increase,” he said.

Juan Permata Adoe, the Deputy Chairman of The Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KADIN) Strategic Food Industry Sector, mentioned that increasing the productivity of farmers by 60 percent, will meet the domestic demand. Thus, it is very important to find solutions that can benefit all stakeholders.

“If domestic demand is met, Indonesia has a great potential to become a net exporter of agricultural products, supplying more than 130 million tons to global market. Therefore, the government needs to implement synergistic policies in order to generate sustainable growth and profitable income for all sectors, covering farmers, private sector, and government,” he explained.

Arief Daryanto, Economic Expert of the Livestock Industry from Business School of Bogor Agricultural University, said that there are six key factors to success in competing in the livestock sector.

1. The existence of an appropriate climate that makes the cost of cage management becomes cheaper.
2. Low labour cost.
3. The strong support of corn and local soybean production is abundant.
4. The existence of contract farming between core companies and plasma farmers (can use cooperative schemes).
5. The existence of large companies with good management, modern equipment, innovative and market driven (market driven)
6. The existence of a conducive investment climate.
