JAKARTA, Dec. 22, 2017 (Local News) -An Indonesian administrative court on Thursday (Dec 21) rejected a petition by a major Indonesian pulp and paper company that challenged a government decision to void the firm's 10-year business plan.

Riau Andalan Pulp and Paper (Rapp), the operational unit of Singapore-based pulpwood company Asia Pacific Resources International (April), said on Thursday it would adjust the plan, which governs its daily operations, to meet Ministry of Environment and Forestry (MoEF) directives.

The dispute between Rapp and the MoEF involved differences over government efforts to speed up the pace at which plantation companies shift off flammable peatlands. Rapp has large areas of peatlands within its Sumatra concessions.
