Indonesia’s Trade Minister Enggartiasto Lukita recently has told dairy importers to look for suppliers outside Europe. He has threatened to hike existing tariffs on EU dairy products, which currently range from 5-10%, to 20-25%. This is in response to an EU proposal for anti-subsidy duties on palm bio-diesel from Indonesia. “The EU wants to impose an 8-18% tariff on palm bio-diesel. We will challenge this unfair treatment,” said Mr Lukita.
