Dear Colleagues,

Following the three-year Covid-19 pandemic, we anticipate that all business sectors will begin to move vigorously in 2023. We also observe that many nations have relaxed public mobility so that the economy has begun to recover, despite the fact that it has been obscured by a recession in some countries. Countries are trying to recover their economies and create competitiveness in the global market, including Indonesia, which continues to enhance palm oil competitiveness in the global vegetable oil market. Throughout 2023, we witnessed a number of policies affecting the palm oil business, in both domestic and palm oil importer countries. We also observe price volatility throughout the year owing to a variety of variables such as global politics, the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine, the progress of production of world vegetable oils, and other fundamental factors which lead to uncertainty.

We recognize that vegetable oil competition in the global market has always been tight for a long time and vegetable oil-producing countries naturally will protect their own vegetable oil products by enacting regulations that are certainly unfavorable to competing vegetable oils. This is also exacerbated by domestic regulations which add cost to the production process, so that maintaining price competitiveness is a big challenge for the palm oil industry. Departing from this background, we raised the IPOC 2023 theme "Enhancing Resiliency Amid Market Uncertainty"

Domestic regulations have a significant influence on industrial growth, thus it is critical for the government to pay close attention to many factors, particularly negative impacts. As a result, it is believed that the laws enacted would promote industrial growth rather than hinder it. At a conference session, we address Indonesia's new palm oil regulation in particular, followed by newly adopted regulation in importing country, particularly the European Union Deforestation Regulation (EUDR), in addition to the main topic of palm oil supply, demand and price outlook. An array of prominent speakers will share their perspectives, while participants will certainly have opportunities to participate in in-depth discussions.

On behalf of the Indonesian Palm Oil Association, I am honored and pleased to invite our esteemed colleagues in palm oil and related industries to join our prestigious annual event IPOC 2023.

It is a great pleasure for me to greet our regular sponsors and partners with whom we have had long-standing relationships and I hope that our collaboration with new sponsors and partners will be equally productive. I also would like to express my heartfelt appreciation to our main sponsors who support our organization.

I encourage you to attend the conference to gain more information and expand your networking. I am confident that this event will contribute added value in developing and shaping the palm oil industry in the future - with great benefits to your business in particular.

Your support and participation will the conference's success. We look forward to seeing you at the conference.

Dear Colleagues,

It is my pleasure and honor to welcome you to the IPOC 2023, which will take place on November 1-3, 2023. We had great success last year, with over 1750 participants from 20 countries attending the conference and exhibition. This year, we are confident that we can attract more participation to IPOC 2023 events. We expect that IPOC 2023 participation will exceed 2,000 participants this year.

The theme of this year's conference is "Enhancing Resiliency Amid Market Uncertainty". This conference will present speakers from around the world, representing different viewpoints from government, industry, researchers, economists, market analysts, and academia.

The Coordinating Minister for Economic Affairs of the Republic of Indonesia will deliver the keynote speech and other top-level government officials will also address the latest issues in the palm oil industry.

In addition to the conference program, we will also arrange a social and business gathering in the form of a golf tournament. Delegates will also be able to enjoy the culture and sights of "Bali" with many interesting local excursions to suit their interests. Our welcome cocktail party and networking night will surely serve as a nice ambiance for participants to expand their network while enjoying a series of cultural performances. Once again, on behalf of the organizing committee, I would like to sincerely extend my invitation to you to participate in the conference.
