Project Name: Karawang Horticulture Development Project(Indonesia)
Project Description: Rice is the main crop in the Karawang regency of West Java, Indonesia, vegetables are only planted while the non-rice production period. Since the outsource plantation model, the profit doesn’t directly contribute to the farmers. Besides, the market access of farmers is also limited by the marketing system, those crops produced by farmers can only be handed over to the local distributor and sold to certain markets. Therefore, farmers’ income is affected.
Based on the national policy of the Indonesian government, focusing on the development of the integrated agricultural demonstration area in Karawang regency, the Indonesian government looks forward to working with the Taiwan government on a 3-year project in Karawang. The main target is going to duplicate the successful model on the complete project ‘‘Strengthening Incubator Agribusiness with Human Resources Development in Bandung’’ implemented by Taiwan Technical Mission, providing the farmers in Karawang on field guidance, enhancing market access through joint marketing, echoing to the goals made by the Indonesian government as farmers income increased.
