Jakarta. Bayu Krisnamurthi was recently appointed as the head of the State Logistics Agency (Bulog) replacing Budi Waseso, who had led the agency for five years.

Bulog holds a crucial role in the government’s food security program and is also very influential in the trade and distribution of basic commodities such as rice, cooking oil, and sugar. 

The appointment of Bayu, who previously served as the head of Bulog’s oversight body, marked a major succession in the agency which also saw the arrival of new members of the board of directors.

“I will continue the leadership of Budi Waseso who in my opinion has been successful in implementing business transformation at Bulog,” Bayu said.
