More actions needed to stop EU’s palm oil ban


Yusof: There have been clear statements by the governments of major palm oil-producing countries to oppose the ban.

KUALA LUMPUR: More engagements, consultations and follow-up actions are needed to remove the European Union’s (EU) threat to ban palm oil use in biofuels, said industry veteran Tan Sri Dr Yusof Basiron.

The former Malaysian Palm Oil Council (MPOC) chief executive officer told Bernama that Malaysia’s stance was still not being heeded by the EU Parliament, despite various talks and engagements being undertaken and conducted at the government-to-government level.
