INDEPENDENT PARTNERSHIP IN NGO STYLE
AS ONE PILLAR OF ECONOMY NATIONALLY, PALM OIL PLANTATION HAS HIGHLY CONTRIBUTED TO THE NATIONAL DEVELOPMENT. THOUGH IT IS ALWAYS ATTACKED BY THE NEGATIVE ACCUSATION, THE REAL ANSWER IS ALWAYS GIVEN THROUGH THE INCREASING WELFARE OF THE PEOPLE’S ECONOMY WHICH IS FROM THE PLANTATION RESULT.
The result of the smallholders’ palm oil plantation in Indonesia should not be underestimated. The better economy of most of the smallholders derives from palm oil. In addition, the power of the smallholders is always helped by the palm oil plantation companies nationally as their partners which keep doing the best to produce crude palm oil (CPO).
It is normal that the CPO production keeps increasing in every single year. The hard work of the smallholders and the plantation companies which are supported by the central and regional government keep running the best and sustainable cultivation practices. This becomes the big power for both sides to welfare the people around the palm oil plantations.
The power of sustainable CPO production which keeps increasing becomes the strong pillar of the economy development in palm oil plantation – base nationally. The plantation will keep being conserved and enlarge palm oil plantation to many other sectors. Palm oil plantation could realize the welfare of the people in many districts to be the power of economy nationally.
Actually the welfare of the people around the palm oil plantation derives from the result of fresh fruit bunch (FFB). By selling FFB, the people get new power to develop their economy. In the same time, the economy of the smallholders could make the new power for the people around.
The people around the palm oil plantation could develop their economy through many kinds of business which are done later, such as, selling the goods, and giving services. The progress of the businesses (goods and service) really relate to the capability of the smallholders in cultivating their areas in the district.
Increase the Regional Economy
The capability of palm oil plantation to increase the potency of economy in many districts is not the new story to tell. The development of the people’s economy has become the power in one province. For example, Riau Province and East Kalimantan Province. The two provinces have become the new powers . . .
