The USDA-sponsored “U.S.–Indonesia Dairy Roundtable” event, held in Jakarta on September 30, 2019, has delivered record results for U.S. dairy exports. In the year since the seminal event concluded, U.S. exports of dairy products to Indonesia surged to more than 160,000 metric tons, valued at more than $346 million. Moreover, U.S. market share of Indonesia’s nearly $1.4 billion dairy import market dramatically increased from 14 percent to 25 percent. In calendar year 2020, as of September, the U.S. had already exported a record volume of dairy products to Indonesia and is on track to reach a record value by the end of the year. The event was an excellent example of FAS collaboration with host government officials, local importers, and U.S. industry stakeholders to increase U.S. exports.
