He also said that the government would do its best to escalate downstream industries to get more optimal utilization in this country. It is hoped that the downstream would minimize the dependence on raw material exports but escalate palm oil additional value – products.

“To support it, we would ask for your supports including PWNU Riau that actively discusses palm oil sustainability in Riau,” Zulkifli said.

Chairman of PWNU Riau, Sulaiman Tanjung also said that Riau is the province within the largest palm oil plantations in Indonesia. The people really depend on palm oil as the source of living.

“We chose the them about palm oil in this discussion because many smallholders in Riau are the flocks of NU. That is why PWNU Riau has the vision to deliver benefits for the flocks by supporting this sector,” Sulaiman said. (T2)
