Quarantine Agency Overwhelmed due to Limitations of Fruit Import Gateways
TEMPO Interactive, Jakarta:The Agriculture Ministry’s Quarantine Agency officials at Tanjung Priok Port said that they were overwhelmed by the overflow of imported fruits and vegetables. The situation was caused by the disproportional ratio between the checking and quarantine facilities and the amount of imported fruit and vegetables. “The quarantine facilities, especially in Tanjung Priok, are inadequate,” said Agriculture Deputy-Minister Rusman Heriawan last week. As a result, many businesspeople protested over the absence of cold storage facilities. The businesspeople also complained about the extra delivery cost they incur due to the policy which limits the gateways for imported fruit and vegetables issued in 2011. Fortunately, state port-management company Pelindo II was willing to provide an area to be used by the ministry as quarantine area in Tanjung Priok. RAFIKA
