INDUSTRY.co.id - The Indonesian government is getting hot with a negative campaign against Indonesia's palm oil products in Europe. The Ministry of Trade also threatened to reply to the EU's action by stopping imports of powdered milk and wine products (alcoholic beverages).

Launched from the Ministry of Trade page, it threatened to stop the export of crude palm oil (CPO) to the blue continent. The threat was made Minister of Trade (Mendag), Enggartiasto Lukita during a press conference Indonesian Palm Oil Conference (IPOC) 2017 in Nusa Dua, Bali, Friday (3/11/20171).

Minister of the Nasdem Party assessed the pressure on Indonesia's palm oil is classified as discriminatory. "I told Europe they started a trade war and I said it would be so," said Enggartiasto.

The minister threatened to do the same for the powdered milk industry. Similar reasons can be used in order to protect Indonesian farmers. Later Kemdag will encourage importers to absorb domestic production. Although the state cannot remove the product source country, but entrepreneurs can stop imports from Europe, until no rules are violated.

In addition, in order to protect the palm oil industry from a negative campaign, Enggar said it has made diplomacy efforts. In terms of relations between countries, Enggar has sent a letter to the EU parliament.

In addition, Kemdag is also actively opening new markets. There are currently three agreements made and targeted to reach 13 new agreements with a number of countries to export CPO. Of the total 16 agreements, it is expected that 10 agreements will be implemented.
