InfoSAWIT, PALANGKARAYA – In fact, Borneo Forum would keep going until next year according to the situation, condition, and the latest issue in palm oil commodity both in local, regional, national, and even international scale.
President of Borneo Forum, Muhammadsjah Djafar said, next year, the host of the 6th Borneo Forum would be in North Kalimantan or in 2023 and would discuss the nowadays issues in palm oil.
He who is also as the Chairman of Indonesian Palm Oil Association (IPOA) East Kalimantan thought, as the leading sector forum his side would always coordinate with plantation agency that is in charge in plantation sector and other related instances, and even with Coordinator Ministry in Economy.
“Just like this year, we just discussed about smallholders replanting program, the price of fresh fruit bunch (FFB) and other significant issues in the 5th Borneo Forum,” he said after accompanying Governor of East Kalimantan, Isran Noor in the 5th Borneo Forum 2022 at Ballroom Kahayan Swiss Belhotel Danum Palangka Raya, Central Kalimantan, as InfoSAWT quoted from the official page of Plantation Agency East Kalimantan Province.
