Minister likens CPO to Boeing

The Jakarta Post, 22 January 2019

Trade Minister Enggartiasto Lukita has stressed that crude palm oil (CPO) is a very important commodity for Indonesia, as important as Boeing is for the United States. Enggartiasto in a statement when opening the Indonesian Palm Oil Forum at the Indonesian Embassy in Washington, DC, on Monday (January 21) said promoting CPO was one of the government’s special focuses in their visit to the US. He said dialogue among business players in various global forums, particularly on CPO, was important to promote the commodity, which had contributed to developing the country’s economy, including in eradicating poverty.
