Coordinating Economic Minister Darmin Nasution said that the cooperation is expected to strengthen the sustainable trade of palm oil and its generated products in India and Indonesia.

India is one of the world's biggest users of palm oil products, with Indonesia's export value recorded at US$4.9 billion (US$1=Rp14,393). It equals to around 34.8 percent of Indonesia's total export value to the country.

Since India has become the most potential markets for Indonesia's palm oil products, besides China, a good communication needs to be maintained at the government and association levels, he stated.

The communication, he added, is partly aimed at wiping out the misperception of Indonesia's cheap palm oil. "The palm oil that we export to India is yet to be used optimally as there is a misperception that its quality is lower than those of other countries due to its cheap price. This is not true," Nasution remarked on the sideline of the signing ceremony.

Instead, Indonesia's palm oil is of high quality. However, thanks to its productivity, which is three or four times higher than that of many other countries, its selling price is much cheaper than that of others, he noted.

"We want to work with the Indian associations to conduct a public awareness campaign that Indonesia's cheap palm oil is not associated with lower quality but higher productivity," he explained, adding that the two countries' economic and trade relations are sound, with total value of $18.1 billion in 2017.

"The data show that the palm oil is important to our countries. I believe that this collaboration will enable the related parties to share views on sustainable growth of the commodity as the leaders of the two countries had previously discussed," he remarked.

As part of the ceremony's agenda, the representatives of the Indonesian and Indian associations also discussed about their increased synergy in the Indonesian Sustainable Palm Oil System (ISPO) and the Indian Palm Oil Sustainability (IPOS).

According to the President of Solvent Extractors' Association of India, Atul Chaturverdi, the MoU would pave the way for sustainable palm oil trade in Asia, adding that India and Indonesia would work together to protect the competitiveness of palm oil industries.

The synergy of ISPO and IPOS would also enable the parties concerned to face future demands of the palm oil markets and meet the national commitments to safeguard a sustainable palm oil trade and production, he stated.

With about 14.3 million hectares of palm plantation, Indonesia is one of the world's largest palm oil producers, with a total production of 40 million tons. The commodity is used for meeting people's demand for cooking oil and biofuels.

During their stay in Indonesia, members of the Solvent Extractors' Association of India's delegation have been scheduled to visit Sintang District in West Kalimantan Province to meet local authorities and observe a place for empowering local palm oil farmers of the Solidaridad and Keling Kumang groups.

The First Fleet Quick Response (FFQR) team of the Tanjungbalai Asahan Naval Base seized the crystal meth after impounding a motor vessel on Sunday, Chief of the Fleet Command I, Yudo Margono, stated on Monday.

      The team impounded the motor vessel after an intelligence officer of the naval base received a tip-off from the public, he noted. The naval base followed up on the tip-off by sending the team to patrol the waters, he added.

      "The FFQR I team of the Tanjungbalai Asahan Naval Base immediately conducted a patrol using Patkamla SSG II-I-47 vessel and checked every suspicious boat passing through the waters," he remarked in a press conference at the Tanjungbalai Asahan Naval Base Station.

She has been tried as a defendant in the assassination of Kim Jong-nam, the half-brother of North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un.

          "Our communication with Aisyah, through our staffs and lawyers in Kuala Lumpur, continues to intensify. We have good lawyers, and we continuously monitor the results," Marsudi told the press at the Vice President Palace in Jakarta on Monday.

          Refusing to further comment on the case, Marsudi convinced the Indonesia people that her ministry would continue to strive for the best interests of Indonesian citizens abroad, including Aisyah.

          Lawyer Gooi Soon Seng previously stated that Aisyah will likely be cleared of all charges as Malaysian prosecutors failed to prove that she had a motive to kill Kim Jong-nam. Seng cited a number of reasons for the acquittal, including lack of eyewitnesses and the fact that the evidence from the prosecution was mostly circumstantial.

          According to Seng, CCTV recordings, which are a cornerstone of the prosecutor's case, do not show Aisyah attacking Kim Jong-nam. "The prosecution has also failed to adduce any evidence on the motive of the murder," Seng revealed.

          The Malaysian court will announce its ruling on Aug 16.

The demand came as white sugar stock has currently reached 700 thousand tons.

                      Chairman of the Indonesia Sugarcane Farmers Association (APTRI), Arum Sabil, said in a statement here on Monday that farmers would face huge financial loss if the government failed to absorb the production. "We hope the Coordinating Minister for Economic Affairs would take immediate action to allow the State Logistic Agency (Bulog) to buy the commodity. A synergy among related ministries is necessary to help farmers," Sabil stated.

                      Sugar price has continued to drop; therefore, a synergy among ministries, including the Trade Ministry, State Enterprises Ministry, and Coordinating Ministry for Economic Affairs, is needed to address the problem, he noted.

                      Bulog, he continued, should buy the commodity at Rp9.7 thousand to Rp10.5 thousand per kilogram. The suggested price was above the government's reference price at Rp9.1 thousand per kilogram as stipulated in the Trade Minister Regulation no. 58/2018 on sugar reference price.

                      The association saw that the purchasing price set in the regulation was too low. Based on a survey on sugarcane and sugar basic production cost in 2018, sugar price should reach Rp10.5 thousand per kioogram.

                      The survey was conducted by Bogor Agriculture University, Gadjah Mada University, Brawijaya University, and the Indonesian Sugarcane Plantation Research Center (P3GI).

                      APTRI recently held a meeting with Trade Minister Enggartiasto Lukita on the assignment for Bulog to absorb farmers' production.

                      However, the government's move to buy the commodity from farmers at Rp9.7 thousandto Rp10.5 thousand per kilogram would need to be discussed by the Coordinating Ministry for Economic Affairs.

                      The association saw that the purchasing price set in the regulation was too low. Based on a survey on sugarcane and sugar basic production cost in 2018, sugar price should reach Rp10.5 thousand per kioogram.

                      The survey was conducted by Bogor Agriculture University, Gadjah Mada University, Brawijaya University, and the Indonesian Sugarcane Plantation Research Center (P3GI).

                      APTRI recently held a meeting with Trade Minister Enggartiasto Lukita on the assignment for Bulog to absorb farmers' production.

                      However, the government's move to buy the commodity from farmers at Rp9.7 thousandto Rp10.5 thousand per kilogram would need to be discussed by the Coordinating Ministry for Economic Affairs.

Indonesia's Trade Minister Enggartiasto Lukita said that his side will lead a visit to the US from July 21 to 28 this year.

                          The visit is aimed at maintaining a balance in trade relation between the two countries. "The government will seek to safeguard and secure Indonesia's export commodity markets to destination countries, in order to arrive at the targeted export growth of 11 percent," he said in a written statement, made available to Antara on Monday.

                          "Therefore, the government should be ready to act if there is an indication that its export market will face obstacles," he remarked.

                          The visit, according to him, constituted an anticipatory step over international trade dynamism, which had spread to the policy on protectionism up to a rise on import duty. In addition, the visit will also aim at strengthening bilateral partnership between the two countries.

                          However, the visit to the US this time was only to safeguard the interest of Indonesia's export in order to avoid being affected by the policy of protectionism. Besides, the US is the second main trade partner of Indonesia after China, the minister explained.

                          Indonesia is scheduled to meet the invitation of the United States' Trade Representatives (USTR) Ambassador to discuss the country's review of the recipient countries of the Generalized System Preferences (GSP), and Indonesia is one among them.

                          In addition, Lukita is scheduled to meet with the US Trade Secretary in order to garner the support of the country's domestic industry. Moreover, Indonesia is also slated to raise the issue on the US trade deficit from this largest archipelagic country.

                          "Indonesia is ready to partner with the US to identify and overcome the trade deficit concerned as both countries have products and services that are not competent but complement each other," the minister stressed.

Head of the BPS Suhariyanto told reporters here on Monday the country's exports in June were valued at US$13 billion down 19.80 percent from the previous month with imports even shrinking deeper by 36.27 percent to US$11.26 billion in the same period.

                                      "Our trade balance in June, 2018 still gave us a surplus of US$1.74 billion . The surplus rose significantly from US$1.11 billion in the same months in 2016 and US$1.67 billion in 2017," Suhariyanto said.

                                      Suhariyanto said the decline in exports and imports in June, 2018 was normal with the long holidays during the Ied ul Fitr celebration that took place that month. He said the surplus in June was attributable to a US$2.14 billion surplus in the trade of commodities other than oil and gas when deficit was recorded at US$393 million in oil and gas trade.

                                      Cumulatively in the January-June period, a deficit of US$1.02 billion was recorded in the country's trade balance with exports valued at US$88.02 billion and imports valued at US$89.04 billion.

                                      In 2018, surplus in Indonesia's trade was recorded only in March and June with deficit recorded in January, February, April and may. Trade in non-oil/gas commodities left the country a surplus of US$4.3 billion but the surplus was not enough to offset a bigger deficit in the oil and gas trade.

                                      Indonesia recorded surpluses of US$4.1 billion in trade with the United States, US$3.96 billion in trade with India US$1.33 billion with the Netherlands.

                                      The biggest deficit by countries was US$8.3 billion in trade with China, US$2.4 billion with Thailand and US$1.27 billion in trade with Australia.

The couple was speeding on a motorcycle to enter the headquarters, and they were shot by police on duty.

                                                        However, the two turned around and headed for the exit gate after hurling a pressure cooker bomb at the officers. No police officer was injured in the incident, and there was no explosion at the scene.

He admitted that among of the names that still being discussed with his party are West Nusa Tenggara Governor Tuan Guru Bajang (TGB) Zainul Majdi, former Constitutional Court chairman Mahfud MD, and Golkar Party chairman Airlangga Hartarto.

                                                            Jokowi mentioned those names after attending the Public Lecture of State Defense Academy of the NasDem Party. A number of party leaders also attended the event and several figures, including Airlangga, Mahfud, and TGB. Jokowi was asked by the reporters whether the three figures were included in his running-mate candidates list.

                                                            “Yes, they are on the list because the candidates certainly more than one,” said Jokowi on Monday (July 16).

                                                            Jokowi said TGB, Mahfud and Airlangga are good figures to be his running-mate. Proposals from coalition parties also will be considered. He asserted all the names will be discussed.

                                                            Earlier, Jokowi also admitted that National Awakening Party (PKB) chairman Muhaimin Iskandar or Cak Imin is one of his five running-mate candidates. PDI-P politician Maruarar Sirait has said that actually the figure of Jokowi’s running mate would not going to be surprising.

                                                            He assessed it would be no surprise because Jokowi would choose his vice president candidate based on the track record and achievement of the figure.  According to him, PDI-P nominates figure based on many things. In fact, he asserted there is no place in Indonesia for people who want to be an instant leader.

                                                            “For example, Jokowi has became a mayor, then Jakarta Governor, and no President, so to become a leader, must through process,” Maruarar added.
