The research shows the average of unit cost ratio of palm sugar is less than 1, that is, 0.41. This indicates that palm sugar in Rejang Lebong has high competitiveness degree. The research also find that with current price, the palm sugarproducers still get profits even if their production decrease 10 %, or the production cost increase 20 %. With the current production, their businesses are still profitable. Even if these three simulations accour simultaneously, the palm sugar industries are still profitable. With these conditions, governments are unnecessary to intervene. The MRP of palm sugar in Rejang lebong is Rp. 8,176.87 with assumption of 30 % profit level. Since the MRP is far below the current amrket price, It is unnecessary government to intervene. It is better that price is formed under market mechanism.
