Palm oil industry faces many future challenges which inevitably requires effective international collaboration. A synergistic approach involving variety of actors is crucial for the industry especially in addressing negative perception of palm oil, one of the relentless issues. This approach needs a dedicated joint platform aiming at integrating, facilitating, and bridging the global palm oil stakeholders' on issues of common concern.

Some of the focuses include the strengthened alliance of palm oil producing countries to mitigate challenges and maximize opportunities particularly in joint positive campaigns, engagement with government of consuming countries and their stakeholders to garner consumers’ needs which is instrumental for policy improvement, constructive dialogue engaging multi-stakeholders of palm oil producing and consuming countries, and engagement with multilateral organizations especially with the United Nations and its specialized agencies to open exchange of views and possible partnership in promoting palm oil.

Dr.Rizal, Two questions please. 1. The views here are for Malaysia and Indonesia, the two biggest oil pam producers. What about the views of the other producing countries? 2. I read that Colombia and some other countries joined CPOPC too. If they have not joined, what are their reservations not to join?
venny roselina:
1. Yes. This is the views of Indonesia and Malaysia. But this views has been shared with all the Observer Countries from Latin America (Colombia and Honduras), Africa (Ghana) and Papua New Guinea, and they are in agreement with this views. 2. Currently, Colombia is still in Observer Country of CPOPC, which include Honduras, Ghana and Papua New Guinea. Most likely Honduras and Papua New Guinea will be full member of CPOPC by end of this year. For Colombia, they are in the process to get approval from the Parliament and it may take a while for they to get the approval.
