INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - To increase the competitiveness of national palm oil, the Indonesian Palm Oil Entrepreneurs Association (GAPKI) proposed three requests to the government. One is the expansion of exports.
"One of the requests is that the Government of Indonesia is expanding its exports to non-traditional destination countries in order to maintain Indonesia's position as the leader of the palm oil market in the world," said Joko Supriyono, Chairman of GAPKI, Friday (3/11/2017).
Joko said competitiveness and productivity will become the essence of competition in the future. The most competitive and competitive producer will be the winner and the fulfillment of sustainability principle (sustainability) is one of the determinants of competitiveness.
"To maintain its position as a market leader, the Government of Indonesia needs to expand its exports to non-traditional destination countries," Joko said.
The second request, continued Joko, it encourages the government to improve the investment climate, including by reviewing a number of regulations that cause obstacles to investment. Thirdly, Indonesian Sustainable Palm Oil (ISPO) should be strengthened, especially for ISPO's institutional partnership to be internationally recognized and trusted.
"The ISPO should represent the Indonesian oil palm sector, and small-scale farmers should be included and the maximum support from the government and stakeholders, as well as cooperation between small-scale enterprises and farmers is imperative," Joko said.
