InfoSAWIT, JAKARTA – Until now palm oil and the derivatives exports keep increasing nationally. But General Director of Export Development, Ministry of Trade, Arlinda said, palm oil exports should not stop in the form of crude oil only but also should be develop to the downstream products to export.

The vegetable oil markets in the world get more complex. lots of negative issues are aimed to the national palm oil industries. “Palm oil exports keep increasing though there are lots of negative issues. So we have to gather that we are strong. In addition, it is indicated that European countries do their best so that palm oil would not be in their countries,” she recently said in a seminar in Jakarta that InfoSAWIT also attended.

In the recent days, European parliament agreed the document saying that palm oil is the factor of deforestation. So she said, it needs empowerment about the definition of deforestation from the regulation of Indonesia and also the less trust of Europe to the sustainable scheme in Indonesian version.

In the future, she continued, it would not be effective if blocking one to another issues. It needs direct discussion with their government. “If we talk about one to another issue, it would not be effective. We need to discuss it with their government,” she said. (T2)
