Looking Again at the ‘Urgency’ for the Execution of Presidential Instruction on the Moratorium on Oil Palm Plantation Licensing in Indonesia

March 7, 2018

A moratorium will always arouse conflicting views in virtually any case possible. A moratorium on oil palm licensing is a clear example. There is no wrong or right in picking sides, as both sides have their own arguments. It is down to the government to not pick either side or act against the other’s interest. Accommodating the interest of all the parties concerned, that’s the government’s job in a nutshell.
