December 16, 2019 |

In Indonesia, following warnings that it wouldn’t take the European Union’s policy against palm oil in biofuels sitting down, Reuters reports that Indonesia has officially sent a request for consultations to the World Trade Organization, the first step in a complaint, on December 9. The consultation process lasts 60 days and if no resolution is found, the European Commission can request the WTO open a dispute panel to make a decision. The new EU ambassador to Indonesia told the Jakarta Times newspaper that the trade bloc is more than prepared to counter any complaints against its biofuel policy.
