Fund management needs fixing

Kompas, 7 December 2018

Oil Palm Farmers Union (SPKS) Secretary General Mansuetus Darto on Thursday (6 December) argued the government should leverage the issuance of the new regulation on export levies to fix the management of palm oil fund levy, especially for the replanting programme of smallholders’ plantations. The programme is facing difficulties because many smallholders do not own land certificates, causing them ineligible for the fund managed by the Indonesian Oil Palm Estate Fund (BPDPKS).
