Discussion took place in Arya Duta Hotel in Medan on Monday August 15, 2011. Edouard Bault is Manager of Sustainability and Farmers Support Division at PT. Indo CafCo which belongs to ECOM Agroindustrial Corporation Ltd. Dr. Bernard P. Dufour is a coffee entomologist working at CIRAD, a French research centre working with developing countries to tackle international agricultural and development issues. Dr. Zaenuddin, a scientist at Indonesian Coffee and Cocoa Research Institute (ICCRI) Jember, and Ir. Edwin Sanso Saragih MS, a socioeconomist, both work at International Finance Corporation (IFC), member of World Bank Group. Dr. Sabam Malau is Chairman of NSCF-North Sumatra Coffee Forum headquartered in Medan, North Sumatra Province, Indonesia.

At the friendly atmosphere of the fruitful discussion, all of them shared their goals, experiences, opinions and suggestions. CBB is the the most destructive pest in the world (see page Coffee of the World is Now on the Way to Death) as well as in North Sumatra Province (see page Coffee Berry Borer Hypothenemus hampei). CBB must be eradicated as soon as possible for the sake of coffee sustainability as well as for the sake of all coffee stakeholders welfare. The biological life of CBB needs tobe understood and can then be used as base of CBB eradication in the future (see page Photos of How Coffee Berry Borer Hypothenemus hampei Destructs Coffee Bean). Actions must be conducted based on the existing environmental local situation. Seemingly, they will be joint together in one activity in the nearest days, but it still needs some farther preparations, discussions and clarifications.

Kind regards,

Dr. Sabam Malau
NSCF Chairman
