Indian restriction on palm oil imports will lower prices

The expected move by India is in reaction to statements made by Malaysian Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad at the United Nations General Assembly last month that India had “invaded and occupied” Jammu and Kashmir.

PETALING JAYA: A potential restriction by India on palm oil imports from Malaysia will lead to higher stockpiles and lower crude palm oil prices here, CGS CIMB Research says.

The research house said the move would result in Indian downstream producers purchasing more palm oil from Indonesia, at the expense of Malaysian producers, over the short term.
