Indonesia keeps Nov crude palm oil export tax at zero

JAKARTA, Oct 30 (Reuters) - Indonesia set its crude palm oil export tax for November at zero, a trade ministry official said on Thursday, unchanged from the previous month.

The decision was largely anticipated by industry sources, who expected the world's top producer to strive to keep competitive with rival grower Malaysia, which has also dropped the tax.

The official did not provide further details. (Reporting by Dennys Kapa; Writing by Fergus Jensen; Editing by Clarence Fernandez)
