This research is conducted in Agust 2011 at Air MelesAtas in Subdistrict of Selupu Rejang and Sindang Jaya in Subdistrict Sindang Kelingi in Rejang Lebong Regency. Respondents in this research are 86 palm sugar producers selected using simplerandom sampling and who are inteviewed to collect primary data. Analysis method used are costunit approach to measure competitiveness level as proposed by Coocburn and Siggel (1998) and Minimum Regional Price as suggested by Darwis (2011) to detemine minimum regional price ofpalm sugar. 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. Theresearch also find that with current price, the palm sugarproducers still get profits even if theirproduction 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 palmsugar industries are still profitable. With these conditions, governments are unnecessary tointervene. 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 tointervene. It is better that price is formed under market mechanism.
