According to the Regent, several important things to be done by the regional government in the context of developing coconut commodities are delaying the issuance of recommendations for oil palm business licenses and opening of new oil palm lands in forest areas.

Apart from that, the Regent revealed that it is necessary to collect data and map all plantation areas in areas that are managed by an agency or individual, covering the area of ??land and year of planting.

"Since 2014, the Indragiri Hilir Regency Government has no longer issued permits for land clearing for oil palm plantations with new land clearing because the Regional Government is more focused on developing existing coconut commodities," said the Regent.
