Indonesia wants to negotiate its CPO export with the European Union (EU) to prevent a trade war that will only hurt both parties. Vice President Jusuf Kalla said that the negotiation will be held at trade forums between Indonesia and the EU. However, it can’t be determined when both parties will actually reach an agreement. Discussions on the palm oil issue began four years ago. There are some points that both Indonesia and the EU found it hard to agree on, he said in Jakarta on Wednesday (April 11).
