"We can inform all parties about the progress and challenges of Indonesian people's plantation and the development of APKASINDO," said Rino.

Currently, APKASINDO has stewardship in 21 provinces and 140 districts throughout Indonesia. "In the future, we will strengthen the internal organization to the sub-district level so that the oil palm growers can feel the APKASINDO program," said Rino.
