By taking the case of the oil palm sector in Indonesia, the role of civil society and international organizations, non-governmental organizations, oil palm companies and UN representatives.

“The interaction results of non-governmental and government actors in the palm oil industry unfortunately leads to unproductive (chaotic and competitive) relationships rather than dynamic and constructive relationships as expected, which is likely due to the issue of state sovereignty and interests national sector of the palm oil industry, “Hospes said.

Nevertheless, the cooperation of the Indonesian and private governments in the palm oil sector does not always bear negative consequences. Hospes mentioned that “The value of Indonesian palm oil exports shows an increasing trend due to the good cooperation between the government and the private sector”.
