Export tax should never have been imposed on CPO, commented Indonesian agriculture minister Bungaran Saragih yesterday (11 January), lending full support to the call for its abolition. Domestic CPO producers demanded that the tax be scrapped, struggling after the global fall in the commodity's price, but industry and trade minister Luhut B. Panjaitan is stressing that the advantages and disadvantages of the proposal are still being reviewed by the government.
