This study was conducted by formulating an econometric model of CPO industry. The model specification was dynamic simultaneous equations that consisted of 71 behavioral and 48 identities equations, while model estimated and simulated by using 2SLS and Newton method. The result showed that domestic policy through facilitation of increasing the production capacity of palm cooking oil, margarine and soap industries, as well as increasing CPO demand by other industries can increase the competitiveness of Indonesian CPO exports, as well as increase the welfare of oil palm farmers and CPO producers also net welfare.
