We are optimistic that in the medium and long term the company will again rise to find the best momentum to become one of the plantation companies that have strong business fundamentals," he said in Jakarta on Wednesday (2/8/2017).
The Company sees superior seeds and farmer assistance of national oil palm plantation owners of approximately 4 million hectares is a key to sustainable palm oil productivity as a national strategic commodity.
