INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta- Indonesian delegation is ready to explain the objective condition of Indonesia's palm oil plantation sector at a summit at the United Nations United Nations (UN) Headquarters on Wednesday (6/9/2017).

Executive Director of Indonesian Oil Palm Entrepreneurs Association (Gapki) Fadhil Hasan from New York on Monday said after the meeting, the government and the business world hope the West is more proportional in assessing this largest foreign exchange sector.

"They (Europe and the United States) are often disproportionate.We will explain everything," he said through a written statement received by the Editor in Jakarta, Monday (4/9/2017).

Fadhil became one of Gapki's delegates in this UN meeting, besides attending the Chairman of Gapki Joko Supriyono who will be the speaker, Vice Chairman Gapki Mona Surya, and Spokesperson Gapki Tofan Mahdi.

At a summit hosted by the UN Development Program (UNDP), Chairman Gapki Joko Supriyono will present the economic and ecological aspects of the palm oil sector in Indonesia.

Compared to Malaysia, according to Fadhil, Indonesia's palm sector is highlighted, especially related to environmental issues and sustainability.

"There is no perfect development, but do not let the sustainability of palm oil governance be a mere cover for Indonesia in trade negotiations," he said.

The Indonesian delegation will also attend a number of informal discussions and meetings with UNDP, representatives of the US government, and a visit to the Mars Inc. which is a palm oil buyer from Indonesia.

In addition to Indonesia, the two countries are also invited to the summit at the UN, namely Peru (cattle ranch), Brazil (soybean plantation), and Liberia (palm). These three countries are also highly highlighted regarding their environmental governance.

Fadhil asserted that Indonesia has a strong commitment to continue to achieve sustainable palm oil plantation governance.
