It is a great pleasure for me to inform you that the Indonesian Oil Palm Research Institute (IOPRI) will organize a fourth-annual event, the International Oil Palm Conference (IOPC) 2014 from 17 to 19 June 2014 at the Bali Nusa Dua Convention Center, one of the famous destinations in Indonesia.This event is presented to continue the success of IOPC 2010 which had attended by 987 participants from 21 countries.
IOPC 2014 has three concurrent conferences including Agriculture & Biotechnology; Product Development & Process Technology; and Social Economics & Environment.The Conference will provide update informations on the latest findings, oil palm developments, challenges and future prospects of the industry. A trade exhibition to provide opportunities for delegates to view and discuss current technologies, equipment's and products related to the oil palm industry will also be held throughout the conferences. IOPC 2014 is expected to draw more than 1500 participants and trade visitors from all over the world.
Official theme of the IOPC 2014 is 'Green Palm Oil for Food Security and Renewable Energy' which will focus on the prosperity of palm oil in supporting food chain and renewable-green energy. In line with the theme, I hope that IOPC 2014 will once again come up with excellent strategy and formulation of palm oil industry to meet market needs and green-environment.
