Pres. Jokowi ‘Strongly Protests’ EU Stance on Palm Oil

Thursday, March 15, 2018

Indonesian President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo has sent a letter to the European Union President and the European Parliament to convey his “strong protest” over a recent decision that would restrict exports of Indonesia’s crude palm oil (CPO) to the Union. In January, the European Parliament approved a bill that would limit the use of palm oil as transportation fuel starting in 2021.  The bill contains a plan to increase renewable energy use to at least 35 percent of overall energy use, but it also limits the use of biofuels.
