MELAKA: Sri Lanka’s ban on palm oil imports from Malaysia is not expected to affect the country’s key commodity industry as Malaysia’s market is growing in several countries such as Africa and the Middle East.
Minister of Plantation Industries and Commodities Datuk Dr Mohd Khairuddin Aman Razali said apart from that, the demand for Malaysia’s palm oil was also increasing in the Philippines and Vietnam, thus proving that the quality of the commodity was one of the factors that helped expand its market globally.
“The world has a population of over seven billion people and we are confident our palm oil will be accepted worldwide.
“If one party is not interested, many more are interested and most importantly we give the best quality in the country’s palm oil production, ” he told reporters after opening the Malaysian cocoa board’s handmade chocolate entrepreneur development course and the launch of Lacrista Hotel chocolate kiosk here yesterday. — Bernama
