Statement of President of the Republic of Indonesia on Cooking Oil Policy, Merdeka Palace, Special Capital Region of Jakarta, April 22, 2022
Assalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh,
Distinguished Ladies and Gentlemen,
Today, I led a meeting on fulfillment of public basic necessities, particularly matters related to the national availability of cooking oil.
During the meeting, I decided that the Government will ban exports of cooking oil raw materials and cooking oil starting Thursday, April 28, 2022 until further notice.
I will continue to monitor and evaluate the implementation of this policy so that there is abundant supply of cooking oil at an affordable price.
I thank you.
Wassalamu’alaikum warrahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
