This article suggests that the discursive strategies of GAPKI and others resemble a hagiographic device, where rational actors motivated by profit or life-enhancing outcomes are expected, and put under pressure, to support the national palm oil industry.
The Palm Oil Farmers Association (Asosiasi Petani Kelapa Sawit Indonesia, or Apkasindo) claims 40 percent of palm oil concessions are foreign owned, while the body representing both foreign and domestic companies, the Indonesian Palm Oil Association (Gabungan Asosiasi Perkebunan Kelapa Sawit Indonesia, or GAPKI) estimates 30 percent of the industry is foreign owned (Harian Ekonomi Neraca 2013).
The GAPKI predicted that the CPO price would reach US$ 950 per ton in international market in 2014, up from an average of US$ 795 per ton toward the end of 2013.
Gapki's calculation, revealed on Friday, is quite similar to the previous estimate put forward by the Indonesian Sustainable Palm Oil Commission which, based on joint research with an international research agency, maintained that Indonesian palm oil- based biofuel could cut between 40 percent and 60 percent of greenhouse gasses based on the method in accordance with European Union (EU) rules.
Crude palm oil output last year rose 12.5 percent to 43 million tonnes, GAPKI chairman Joko Supriyono told.

The Indonesian Association of Palm Oil Companies (GAPKI) sets the country's production of CPO at 30 million tons in 2013, up from 25.5 million tons in 2012.
Executive director of the Indonesian Association of Palm Oil Companies (Gapki) Fadhil Hasan said revision of the regulation of the agriculture minister No.
The Indonesian Association of Palm Oil Companies (GAPKI) predicted that the country's production of CPO in 2012 would increase to 25 million tons, from 23.5 million tons in 2011.
