"I guarantee the quality of Indonesian palm oil, 'the best in the world'," Enggartiasto said when opening the Business Forum of Indonesian-Russian Oil Palm in Moscow, Russia, Thursday (3/8/2018)

The Business Forum is a series of Indonesian Festival II events held by the Embassy of the Republic of Indonesia in Moscow on 4 to August 6, 2017 in promoting various products and services as well as Indonesian tourism in Russia. The meeting formed the Indonesian-Russian Palm Oil Association.

The Minister of Trade assured that the objection from the European Union on Indonesian oil palm products mentioned to endanger health and cause deforestation due to environmental damage is actually a matter of trade competition because Indonesian products are very competitive.

Wahid Supriyadi, Director General of International Trade Negotiations Iman Pambagyo, and Director General of National Export Development Arlinda.
