Indonesia Awaiting Govt to Implement New Excise on Sweet Beverage

Bisnis, JAKARTA – The government has incorporated excise revenue from packaged sweetened beverages (MBDK), into the 2024 State Budget (APBN), with an excise target of IDR 4.39 trillion. Regulations concerning excise on sweetened beverages are slated for enactment this year.

Nevertheless, the imposition of excise on sweetened beverages continues to generate both pros and cons. Supporters deem the implementation of MBDK excise imperative in curbing the prevalence of diabetes, while dissenters argue that excise implementation is an ineffective measure for reducing sugar consumption.

Deputy Minister of Health Dante Saksono Harbuwono has confirmed that the MBDK excise is scheduled for ratification in 2024. Currently, these regulations have progressed to the final stage and require socialization before implementation.

"[MBDK excise regulations] have reached the final stage, all that remains is to socialize them, then they will be implemented," he stated, as quoted from Antara on Monday (29/1/2024).
