Though palm oil PS was announced, some parties, including Governor of Riau Syamsuar thought, the numbers are no enough about the calculation. He said the central government never involved palm oil producer regions to calculate palm oil PS and the regions never know what the formulation was and be taken as ideal numbers.
Syamsuar hoped the central government should be open about PS calculation. By having it, the regions where palm oil plantations develop would have better understanding about the calculation and get result as many hoped for, as quoted from the official page of Riau Province. (T2)
