InfoSAWIT, JAKARTA – To increase product competitiveness, namely crude palm oil (CPO), according to Secretary of Industry, Airlangga Hartarto, it needs to work hard to develop the industries well. The palm oil downstream industries that become the potential domestic industries would help to absorb CPO as the industrial material nationally.
So the man who now leads a party, said, many sides should cooperate to develop CPO downstream industries to be stronger and to have better competition in the international markets, and contribute to supply the market needs.
The huge CPO stocks nationally, he continued, would be potential to the exchange. It could be done by constructing the CPO downstream industries for having additional value nationally. Producing CPO downstream products would be sold and exported to fulfill the demands in the neighbour countries.
“Developing CPO downstream industries in this country would be profitable nationally and multiply the exchange for exporting the products to other countries,” he recently said.(T1)
