Inaugurating Bunex 2023, SYL Encouraged to Develop Downstream Sectors to get Economic Reinforcement

InfoSAWIT, TANGERANG – Minister of Agriculture, Syahrul Yasin Limpo (SYL) encouraged stakeholders to develop plantation downstream sector as the way to reinforce future economic power. He thought, downstream (sectors) are the new icons to escalate the people’s income.

“Downstream is the power and new icon in Indonesia that we should create together. At least, biodiesel from palm oil plantation could make biodiesel imports reduce,” SYL said when inaugurating Perkebunan Expo (Bunex 2023) at Indonesia Convention Exhibition (ICE BSD), Tangerang, Banten Province, Thursday, 7 September 2023.

He also said that by having downstream sectors, the target of Indonesia to reinforce economic would be realized nationally. That is why it needs to get total consolidation from many parties to improve the areas in every region.

“The future concept should focus to improve available areas, such as, our palm oil plantations. For me, palm oil is like a - 100 carat gold, not 24 carats anymore. Why? Because palm oil is the source of life for 280 million citizens of Indonesia,” he said, as in the official statement to InfoSAWIT.

SYL also mentioned, agriculture is the most strategic sector because in the past four years, it positively develops when others got contraction because of crisis globally.

“I really hope that by Bunex 2023, there would be the same understanding from my friends, particularly in private sectors to accelerate downstream (sectors). In two or three days to go, I would accompany president to discuss and speak about food issues. That is why we have to be more accelerative,” he said. (T2)
