After seeing the location, he directly did diplomacy. The President instructed his ministries to solve the fire. But whatever he did, it did not solve the issue yet.

Some things and breakthrough were done from the conclusion told by US peat expert to extinguish the fire, that is, by artificial rain. Coordinator Secretary of Politic, Legal, and Human Rights, LuhutPanjaitan also emphasized the same.

Those were some activities of President JokoWidodo in the last few months. He was busy because of some person that might intentionally burn the forest and areas. The forest and areas were burned and the smoke does not vanish yet, but palm oil trees have been planted. It is an interesting phenomenon.

In the last several months, President JokoWidodo should actually do palm oil diplomacy. It started how to solve the smoke, then met Prime Minister of Malaysia, PM Najib Razak to cooperate with the palm oil producer countries, and also met the USA Former President, Barrack Obama to cooperate in developing biofuel for plane.

It might happen that the President’s activity would be stronger signal that he supports palm oil development in the future.
