Dozens of East Javanese people demonstrate in front of the East Java Governor\'s Office in Surabaya on Tuesday, Jan. 23, 2018. They expressed their opposition to the rice import policy when the harvest period was approaching as they considered it to be detrimental to farmers.

The government plans to import 1 million tons of rice through state-owned Perum Bulog this year. This rice import is to be carried out to maintain rice stock reserves.

This import plan shocked many sides because it was announced in the middle of the grand harvest. There have been no signs of problems related to rice stock. There is no urgency to import rice.
