Abstract

This research analysed employment in palm oil plantation sector, its contribution to Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in South Sumatra and the influence of CPO demand to employment and GDP in South Sumatra. This research employed both qualitative and quantitative methods. Qualitative analysis was carried out using secondary data, whereas quantitative analysis employed simple regression analysis with Ordinary Least Square (OLS). Research results showed that employment in palm plantation sector increased from 264,871 in 2013 to 291,716 in 2015. South Sumatra CPO export improved from US $ 13.20 million in 2014 to US $ 14.74 million in 2015, shared of about 11.64 percent of South Sumatra non-oil and gas export. The results of regression test indicated that growing demand of CPO significantly influenced employment and GDP in South Sumatra. It was suggested to the government to support the expansion of palm oil plantation for CPO production in order to achieve higher employment level and greater contribution to GDP in South Sumatra. Research result also showed that palm plant production from local farmers were still low. Government must provide more seeds and subsidized fertilizer, and set more supporting policies. Beside that farmers also must be educated about the potential of Palm plant as alternative energy.
