Indonesia crude palm oil exports policy
Indonesia to set new CPO exports policy to increase competitiveness
The Indonesian government is reviewing its crude palm oil, CPO, exports policy to increased competitiveness with Malaysian products in order not to lose export markets, local media reported Thursday.
“the policy is still in discussions and we expect it will be issued in the near future, to compete the Malaysian new CPO exports policy,” said Minister of Agriculture Suswono, quoted by the Antara news wire.
He said the new or maybe the revised exports policy is to face competitiveness with Malaysian products. Starting January 2013, Malaysia cut its CPO export tariffs to compensate CPO price decline in recent months.
The final decision of the policy will be excecuted by Coordinating Minister for the Economy Hatta Rajasa. He expected Indonesia and Malaysia, as the world largest CPO producer countries, can work together side by side as world pricemaker in CPO.
The new CPO exports policy that imposed by Malaysia starting January 2013 potentially could harm Indonesia’s CPO in world markets, especially India as Indonesia’s main export destination of CPO.
Malaysia will adopt a progressive export tariffs by 4.5% when the CPO price reaches 2,250 to 2,400 Malaysian Ringgit ( around US$738.20 to 787.41) per metric ton and by 8.8% when the CPO price reaches 3,450 to 3,600 Malaysian Ringgit (around US$1,132.03 to 1,181.25) per metric ton.
Recently Malaysia raised export tariffs on CPO by 23%.
