Wantimpres Visited Kendal

Mr. IGK Manila, Secretary for Mr. Jan Darmadi, Member of Wantimpres, visited Kendal Regency to muster the agricultural conditions. During the visit a meeting was held with the Regent, Deputy Regent, Head of the local agencies (Organisasi Perangkat Daerah/OPD), Sub-District Heads, Village Heads, community leaders, and farmers representatives who discussed “Strengthening the Role of Farmers for Food Self-sufficiency in supporting National Resilience”.
Kendal farmers, who make up the majority of tobacco commodities, are currently enjoying good prices. Even though commodity prices are improving, the farmers welfare must still be considered, currently the majority of farmers in Kendal are labor farmers who do not have their own land.
In addition to the meeting, a Barongan (Kendal Traditional Art Performance) was held in the Gebang Village Field, Gemuh District as a part of strengthening the 4 national pillars. (AM)
