Trade Ministry: World recognises sustainable palm oil

Kontan Harian, 2 July 2018

Indonesia’s victory over a palm oil ad dispute in Lyon, France has awakened new optimism to enhance Indonesia’s palm oil exports to Europe. Indonesian Palm Oil Association (GAPKI) Chairman Joko Supriyono said that this victory proved that any anti-palm oil campaigns and discrimination against palm oil were not allowed by the European legal system. He hoped the victory will have positive impacts on Indonesia’s palm oil sales or, at least, give assurances for palm oil business partners to continue purchasing Indonesia’s palm oil. Trade Ministry Trade Security Director Pradnyawati said that through this victory, the world has recognised Indonesia’s sustainable palm oil.
