He explained, according to the government's target in the next 3-5 years, the export value is US $ 5 billion. His party is worried that the shortage of raw goods will threaten the export target to fail.

"If at this time until the end of the year the possibility of realization has only reached 2.5 billion US dollars," he said.

He asked the government to be able to overcome the scarcity of rattan raw materials. With the current condition, the government has not yet done the right thing to export raw materials.
