INDUSTRY.co.id - Makassar - Chairman of GAPKI (Indonesian Palm Oil Entrepreneurs Association) Joko Supriyono said palm oil plantations are an important part of the national oil palm sector.

"The growth of palm oil plantations is increasingly significant, therefore, the program to increase the productivity of oil palm should not forget the farmers," said Joko ahead of the 13th Indonesian Palm Oil Conference (IPOC) in Nusa Dua Bali, 1-3 November 2017, in his press conference which was received in Makassar on Tuesday (31/10/2017)

Therefore, Joko said, in an effort to increase productivity, the community garden must be involved and the need for cooperation between farmers and large companies of good palm will ensure the sustainability of the largest foreign exchange sector contributors.

"Only with good cooperation between companies and farmers, national oil sector will be more advanced," he said.
 

Related to that, IPOC 2017 raised the theme Growth through Productivity: Partnership with Smallholders.

According to Joko, the national oil palm industry is increasingly proving its role and contribution to the Indonesian economy, especially poverty reduction. Nevertheless, the program of productivity improvement and competitiveness is a necessity.

"If not, Indonesia's palm oil will be tough facing global competition," he continued.

Joko reminded that in improving productivity, of course, contained strategies and mechanisms for the management of oil palm plantations more effective and efficient so that competitiveness was also boosted.

Although the competition of world vegetable oil in the future is getting tighter and dynamic, Joko Supriyono is optimistic that the challenge can be passed well. Especially, as long as there is close cooperation between large-scale enterprises and smallholders.
       

"Therefore, the importance of increasing the productivity of oil palm should be a national movement involving large scale companies and smallholders," he said. (Ant)
