Jelawat fish is one of the fish that fills the waters of lakes, small rivers in the Malay Peninsula and Kalimantan islands.

This fish is a typical fish, the area which is one of the most delicious snacks for indigenous people from the Malay and Dayak tribes, or other tribes who inhabit the area.

This type of jelawat fish has characteristics that are almost similar to the hollow fish / tongis (local language) but with a smaller size. This fish is difficult to catch, but to get it you need to install a snare such as a trawl, lambbau, similar fishing net, or trap.

However, in some fishing hobbyists, there are several techniques and baits of Jelawat Fish that make it possible to get this Jelawat fish.

Jelawat Fish Price.
This fish is very fresh, fat with low fat content because it only eats food sources from nature. However, you have to be careful especially for children who want to eat this fish to avoid the jelawat fish bones which are very delicate.

Processed jelawat fish are made in various ways, some are cooked with curry, fried fish, smoked fish / pindang, or just cooked in gravy with a mixture of tempoyak (fermented durian).

In dry season conditions, the water discharge in the lake as a habitat for this jelawat fish will decrease. This can be an opportunity for us to hunt jelawat fish in the water using the trawl net method.

This method of catching fish is very easy, you just need to find a tree skeleton or fallen tree branch in the lake, then put a trawl around it.

Then, when everything is surrounded, then you jump into the water, messing with the water, twigs / branches so that the jelawat fish come out of hiding.

This method is very effective, in conditions of areas that are rarely hunted using this technique, it is certain that 10 to 20 tails can be surrounded. From that much, you can get 0.5 kg to 2 kg per shake or siege.

Latest Price 2022

Even though it is small, we see that there are quite a lot of searches for the price of Jelawat fish per kg. This search a lot emerged from the Malay Peninsula and Kalimantan.

They there make this jelawat fish in various preparations and needs, so that most Malaysian people, especially in Pahang like this fish.

We cannot predict the price of jelawat fish in Malaysia, but based on the conversion value which refers to the price of a kilo of jelawat fish on the Indonesian market or producing areas, it ranges from Rp. 35,000 to Rp. 40,000. River fish are known to be quite expensive, the price of river jelawat fish is not a problem because this fish is always a bone of contention.

The price of the Pahang river jelawat fish may be in the same range which is between RM. 10 to RM. 12. However, this is not a benchmark, because each region itself depends on market availability and market demand.

Ministry to start calculating Industrial Confidence Index in September

Minister of Industry Agus Gumiwang Kartasasmita.
Minister of Industry Agus Gumiwang Kartasasmita.
BORNEOTRIBUN JAKARTA - The Ministry of Industry will start calculating the Industrial Confidence Index (IKI) in September 2022 through the National Industrial Information System (SIINas).

"We want to have precise and accurate figures on the perception of the industry," Minister of Industry Agus Gumiwang Kartasasmita noted in Jakarta, Friday.

According to Kartasasmita, the essence of IKI is similar to the Purchasing Manager's Index (PMI) of industrial manufacturing issued by IHS Markit to measure industry perceptions.

He pointed out that the Ministry of Industry was unaware of which industrial sectors were to be included in the calculation of IHS Markit to obtain the Indonesian manufacturing PMI figure.

"The PMI that we have received so far from Markit, we do not know which industries are surveyed. We only know that 400 companies were surveyed without knowing which sectors were surveyed," the industry minister remarked.

Kartasasmita noted that with the IKI, the government could gain an understanding of the perception of industry players, so they could mitigate and prepare policies that aligned with the industry needs.

The Ministry of Industry will distribute questionnaires to industries whose contents will not be too different from those submitted by IHS Markit and Bank Indonesia (BI).

According to the minister, the questionnaire will be distributed to several industries based on data of Operational Permits and Mobility of Industrial Activities (IOMKI).

"We already have the IOMKI data, with a total of 16 thousand companies registered by IOMKI," the industry minister said.

Nevertheless, Kartasasmita is grateful that Indonesia's Manufacturing PMI rose again in July 2022, which was 51.53, higher than the June 2022 figure of 50.2.

Moreover, he noted that Indonesia was one of the only three countries in the world that had clocked an increase in PMI in July 2022.

The Indonesian Manufacturing PMI was compiled by IHS Markit on the basis of answers to monthly questionnaires sent to purchasing managers, who are members of a panel comprising about 400 manufacturing companies.

The panel is grouped by sector size and company workforce in detail, based on its contribution to the gross domestic product (GDP).

Survey responses are collected in the second half of each month and indicate the direction of change as compared to the previous month.

The index varies between 0 and 100, with data above 50 indicating an overall gain as compared to the previous month, and below 50, an overall decline.

Ministry pushes shopping center certification to draw investment

BORNEOTRIBUN JAKARTA - The Law and Human Rights Ministry is encouraging intellectual property-based shopping center certification to improve investor confidence to invest in Indonesia, according to the ministry's Directorate General of Intellectual Property.   

So far, the ministry has certified 17 shopping centers and verified 77 submitted documents required for certification, director of investigation and dispute resolution at the directorate general, Anom Wibowo, informed here on Thursday.

The shopping center certification is part of Indonesia's efforts to be removed from the priority watch list (PWL) -- a list of countries that are considered by the International Intellectual Property Alliance (IIPA) to have serious intellectual property violations.

In addition to increasing the trust of foreign investors, the issuance of certification, at the direction of President Joko Widodo (Jokowi), is expected to open as many investment opportunities as possible so that all countries can invest in Indonesia, the director noted.

Hence, the opening of the investment opportunities must also be supported by strict intellectual property law enforcement, he added.

To be eligible for certification, shopping centers must sell goods that have been listed in the data system of the directorate general, whether they are still in the application stage or have been registered, he informed.

Furthermore, the goods must not violate intellectual property.

“At least 70 percent of the merchants in the shopping centers must sell original goods (not fake ones),” Wibowo said.

The intellectual property-based shopping center certification program has been designated as a priority program of the directorate general for 2023 so that Indonesia can be removed from the PWL, he explained.

In the future, the certification will not only target modern shopping centers, but also traditional markets by adopting a humanist approach, for instance, by carrying out training and dissemination regarding intellectual property, he added.

The certification is expected to be expanded to various industrial centers in districts and cities, he said.

Implement DMO and DPO Policies to Maintain Stock and Stability of Cooking Oil Prices

Implement DMO and DPO Policies to Maintain Stock and Stability of Cooking Oil Prices
Implement DMO and DPO Policies to Maintain Stock and Stability of Cooking Oil Prices.

BorneoTribun Jakarta - The government through the Ministry of Trade (Kemendag) implements the Domestic Market Obligation (DMO) and Domestic Price Obligation (DPO) policies to maintain and meet the availability of cooking oil at affordable prices.

The policy, which was implemented starting January 27, 2022, was implemented taking into account the results of the evaluation of the implementation of the one-price cooking oil policy that had been going on for the past week.

The Minister of Trade Muhammad Lutfi revealed that the DMO policy mechanism or the obligation to supply domestically is mandatory for all cooking oil producers who will export.

Later, all exporters who will export are required to supply domestic cooking oil of 20 percent of their respective export volumes.

Muhammad Lutfi explained that the national demand for cooking oil in 2022 is 5.7 million kiloliters.

Household needs are estimated at 3.9 million kilo liters, consisting of 1.2 million kilo liters of premium packaging, 231 thousand kilo liters of simple packaging, and 2.4 million kilo liters of bulk.

"For industrial needs, there are 1.8 million kiloliters," said Lutfi.

Furthermore, said Muhammad Lutfi, that in line with the implementation of the DMO policy, his party will also implement the DPO policy which has been set at Rp9,300 per kilogram for CPO and Rp10,300 per liter for olein.

With the DMO and DPO policies, continued the Minister of Trade, domestically, the Highest Retail Price (HET) for cooking oil will be applied with details, bulk cooking oil Rp11,500 per liter, simple packaged cooking oil Rp13,500. per liter, and premium packaged cooking oil Rp. 14,000 per liter. This HET policy will take effect from February 1, 2022.

Luthfi also said, during the transition period that lasts until February 1, 2022, the cooking oil policy for one price of Rp. 14,000 per liter remains in effect.

"This is taking into account the time allowed for adjustment and management of cooking oil stocks at the level of traders to retailers," he explained.

The Minister of Trade instructed producers to accelerate the distribution of cooking oil and ensure that there were no vacancies at the level of traders and retailers, both in traditional and modern retail markets.

He again appealed to the public to remain wise in buying and not to panic buying because the government guarantees that cooking oil stocks will remain available at affordable prices.

In addition, he said, the government will also take very strict legal steps for business actors who violate the provisions.

It is hoped that with the implementation of this policy, the community will still be able to get cooking oil at affordable prices and still benefit from traders and producers.

"With this policy, we hope that cooking oil prices can be more stable and affordable to the public, and remain profitable for small traders, distributors, and producers," he concluded.
