Trade Minister Enggartiasto Lukita during the European Palm Oil Conference (EPOC) in Madrid, Spain, last weekend said industry players should intensify pro-crude palm oil (CPO) campaigns to explain the role of CPO in sustainable development to international audience. CPO plays an important role in supporting national economy by providing jobs and reducing poverty, he said. The CPO industry provides livelihoods for 5.3 million workers and 21 million people in Indonesia. He said Indonesia and Malaysia will work together on pro-CPO campaign strategies.
