InfoSAWIT, BALI – Coordinator Minister in Economy, Darmin Nasution said, palm oil is the important commodity for Indonesia. So the government really notices so that the industry could develop well for palm oil relates to the lives of million people in this country, both in the people’s plantations, the big privates’ plantations, and in the Enterprises’ plantations.
By the event that gathered the planters, activists, the stakeholders, the environmentalists, and the experts who may support or not by criticizing palm oil, the event could be a dialogue or discussion that may make the same understanding among the stakeholders. “In the end, the solution is cooperation, not defending each other. I think, it is the most important thing,” Darmin recently said to InfoSAWIT in Bali.
He also said, it is the time for the world not to blame palm oil for it is not true. Many sides plant and develop palm oil in the abandoned areas where the trees were cut off since 30 to 60 years ago. “If the areas are not planted by palm oil, the soil may be broken and could not be planted anymore,” Darmin said.
