International Indonesia Seafood & Meat Conference and Expo 2014 is an event that has been highly anticipated by businesses in Indonesia and surrounding countries. "Contrary to government programs which would like to empower marine and meat production and reduce dependence of food imports, especially in the next year (2015) the implementation of free trade in ASEAN countries (AEC), this event will assist businesses in developing business strategy and compete in the onslaught of ASEAN products if AEC is implemented." said Ir. Hasanuddin Yasni, MM - Executive Director of ARPI.

In the beef sector (meat), the government is targeting 580 thousand tons of beef (imports continue to be reduced) and poultry (chicken and poultry) 3.7 million tons or an increase of 7‐10 % a year. The national cold storage capacity in 2013 was only 7.2 million tons of seafood products and 398 thousand tons for beef and 1.9 million tons for poultry which grew only 10 % a year.
