Islamabad and Jakarta have agreed to resume the supply of Indonesian palm oil to Pakistan. This is reported in a press release of the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting of the Islamic Republic, published on Tuesday evening on the agency's website.

It is noted that the agreement was reached during the visit of the Minister of Industry and Production of Pakistan Makhdoom Syed Murtaza Mehmood to Indonesia. "Thanks to the personal intervention of the Minister, two shipments of palm oil — 30 thousand and 27 thousand tons - will be sent to Pakistan today. It is expected that eight more shipments of palm oil will arrive in Karachi by the end of June," the release says.

On April 28, 2022, Indonesia imposed a ban on the export of palm oil due to a shortage of this product within the country. It was filmed on May 23, 2022. Pakistan will be the first country to which Indonesia will resume deliveries of this product after the lifting of the export ban. In 2021, the Islamic Republic imported 2.78 million tons of Indonesian palm oil, becoming the third largest importer of this product from Indonesia.
