Indonesian GI producers association established
The Indonesian Association of Geographical Indications (IAGI) was established in February 2015. It consists of all the GI members from all over Indonesia as well as a number of GI experts. It is not yet clear how it will operate, but there are currently 28 Indonesian GIs registered in Indonesia, as well as 3 foreign GIs. The latest registration was KOPI SUMATRA ARABIKA SIMALUNGUN. Indonesia is now gathering pace in promoting GIs, given its strength in agricultural products.
