GKP's price has touched IDR 8.000 per kg. The price is IDR 7.040 per kg now. Arief confidence if GKP price has been decreasing then the rice price would be cut significantly.

He added that the raising of GKP's price pulled up rice price. Count the rice is simple. It is twice of GKP's price. If GKP's price was IDR 8.000 or IDR 9.000 per kilos then the rice price was IDR 16.000 or IDR 18.000 per kilos.

Decreasing of GKP's price was led by harvest season on March to April. Harvesting grains was predicted to 3,5 million tons. On the other hand, national rice consumption would be about 2,5 million tons.
