Malaysian Palm Oil Council (MPOC) and Malaysian Palm Oil Board (MPOB) are pleased to announce that the third Palm Oil Trade Fair & Seminar (POTS) 2019 will be held in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam on September 13, 2019. Vietnam is one of the largest importers of oils and fats in the region and has been one of the most important destination of Malaysian plam oil for many years. POTS Vietnam will provide a host of opportunities to industry members, both within and outside Vietnam, to discuss current issues affecting trade, explore market opportunities and benefit from various networking sessions. MPOC has prepared an exciting programme for this event. The programme will cover areas surrounding the global oils and fats industry, nutritional and functional attributes of palm oil and price outlook. The seminar will feature renowned local and international speakers who will share their knowledge and experience about areas which have immediate and long-term effects on the oils and fats trade in this region. We are also pleased to announce that the Honourable Minister of Primary Industries of Malaysia has been invited to deliver the keynote address and officially open POTS Vietnam 2019.

We believe that the challenges and issues that will be discussed during this event can be translated into business opportunities and partnerships, when joint efforts are undertaken between suppliers and palm oil users to develop the trade. POTS Vietnam 2019 also offers opportunities for participating companies to promote their products and image via sponsorship and exhibition. As these effective and popular marketing tools are limited, please consider taking up these opportunities to avoid disappointment.

We are confident that this conference will shed insights on current issues and lead to opportunities for expanding trade. Don’t miss this opportunity. Be part of this important event by registering now. Your participation will immensely contribute towards improving the quality of the conference.
