EU palm oil move can result in retaliation


PUTRAJAYA: Malaysia will take all necessary steps to protect its palm oil industry and the 650,000 oil palm smallholders, including retaliating against the European Union (EU) if it were to pass a proposal to ban palm oil in biofuel beginning 2021.

Plantation Industries and Commodities Minister Datuk Seri Mah Siew Keong said he would not rule out Malaysia stopping import of goods from the EU if the ban were to go through.
