Swallow's Nest Worth IDR 8 Billion Exported To China
Minister of Agriculture Syahrul Yasin Limpo released exports of swallow's nests to China with a transaction value of IDR 8 billion.
The potential for export of swallow's nest is very large because many people in the world use it as healthy food, medicine and even used as a natural ingredient for beauty.
"The swallow's nest is the food of kings. Even yesterday in China it was used for Covid recovery," said Minister of Agriculture Syahrul Yasin Limpo, in Surabaya, Thursday (8/12/2022).
So far, there have been dozens of exporters ready to export swallow nests to various countries. They even committed to lobbying countries to accept swallow nests from Indonesia.
"For a long time there have been exports of swallow's nests, but the government has never seriously handled it. Thank God we have handled it and now more than 1,000 tons have been exported and income can reach IDR 20 trillion. This is extraordinary," said Minister of Agriculture Syahrul Yasin Limpo. (*)
