New oil palm plantations in Sabah not allowed to encroach forests says Shafie


KOTA KINABALU: Sabah will not allow any new oil palm plantations to eat into its permanent forest reserves, said Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal (pic).

"Any future plantation development, including oil palm plantations, will only be carried out on previous agricultural land or degraded land," the Sabah Chief Minister said in a statement here on Tuesday (Oct 2).
