No less than Indonesia’s President, Joko Widodo conferred the accolade, which was also awarded to 8 governors and 10 village leaders, during the ceremony that took place in the middle of the rice-paddy dike in the Grand Center for Rice in Subang, West Java, on 26 December 2014.

“With this award, I hope in the future to do more research on food security in Indonesia,” acclaimed Masyhuri.

Coincidentally, the UC has resolved to implement a number of collaborative projects to address food security in the region (see related story). This include a study on the effects of ASEAN economic integration, trade, and investments on food security in the region, which will be spearheaded by UGM.
