BANGI – Malaysia will be compelled to reevaluate options on trade with France if the country keeps its stand on palm biofuels, said Plantation Industries and Commodities Minister, Datuk Seri Mah Siew Keong.

He said this following the recent announcement by the French Minister of Environment, Nicholas Hulot, who suggested for measures to be taken to restrict the use of palm oil in biofuels, to reduce deforestation in the countries of origin.

“This has put pressure on the palm oil industry as well as the producer.

“I believe that for trade between Malaysia and France to stay strong and grow, such attacks against the palm oil industry must stop,” he told reporters after officiating the Transfer of Technology Seminar and Exhibition 2017 here, today.
