Second key messages 
Palm oil + CEPA 
EU imports of palm oil decreasing 
• EU market access is already very important, as IDN palm oil (and derived
products) exports to the EU already represent around 70% of total IDN
exports of agri products to the EU. EU import duties are relatively low and
50% of EU imports of palm oil from IDN already happen with no duty. Total
EU imports of palm oil represent more than 3 Bio €.
• Evolution of imports during the last years shows a positive trend even if 2015
figure is somewhat lower than in the 2014 record.
Palm oil market access in CEPA; will import duties be removed? 
• Take note of IDN offensive interest on palm oil.
[Article 4.1 (a) - International relations]
• As negotiations will be conducted on the principle of single undertaking we
cannot take positions at this stage on individual products without seeing
bigger picture.
• CEPA should also be the occasion to diversify IDN exports as the potential is
there.
EU should stop anti-palm oil campaigns and in particular labelling of food 
products as "palm oil free" 

• The EU legislation aims at informing consumers about the food they
purchase and require the indication of the type of vegetable oil/fat. It applies
to all oils without distinction.
• Provided the claim is not false and does not mislead the consumer (e.g. on
health impacts) the EU cannot prevent a manufacturer from stating that a
product is free of certain ingredient.
