TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - A representative of the Indonesian Traditional Market Traders Association (IKAPPI) on Friday said the reopening of CPO and cooking oil exports had exposed the ill-preparedness of state ministers in producing regulations and reaching the regulations' goals. 

IKAPPI secretary Reynaldi Sarijowan in a written statement on May 20 expressed his dissatisfaction with a number of state ministers, whom he believed failed to act out what is mandated by President Joko Widodo. 

“We are disappointed by the Coordinating Minister of Economics, the Minister of Industry, and the Minister of Trade, as they were unable to meet the President’s instructions,” Reynaldi wrote on May 20. 

He recalled President Jokowi’s instructions regarding cooking oil upper ceiling and ample supply in the market were failed to be realized. Reynaldi believed exports should have remained open to help generate income for the country, but at the same time, domestic supply must also be met. 

“The President wanted to see the upper price ceiling enacted at traditional markets and also wanted to see enough supply available. But in fact, we have not been able to obtain enough supply of bulk cooking oil across traditional markets,” said Reynaldi.
