What’s the hottest issue in your country now?

Hi Guys,

I just want to share about one of the hottest issue in my country…

Last month, Australia suspended live cattle export to Indonesia. It is because the TV documentary showed steers being wiped, beaten and slashed repeatedly in Indonesia abattoirs.

First, Australia decided to suspend for 6 months, but yesterday
Australia has lifted the suspension.

It is a good news not only for Indonesia but also Australia.

Indonesia is a big market for Australia. 60% of export Australia goes to Indonesia.

Thus, when Australia decided to ban cattle export, many people just said, “Calm down. we need each other, right?”

This is happening now. It hasn’t been six months and the cattle trade is opened again.

Apart from that, Indonesia decides to make a big changing on abattoirs.

So, what’s the hottest issue in your country now, guys? Share please…
