Discriminatory EU rules squeeze Malaysia’s palm oil sector, says Fadillah

THE European Union Deforestation-free Regulation (EUDR) and several other rules introduced by Europe are discriminatory towards restricting businesses and Malaysia’s palm oil industry, said Deputy Prime Minister Fadillah Yusof.

He said the regulation, in addition to the “European Green Deal”, is a proposal to restrict the entry of products from Malaysia, which are more productive and progressive compared with products produced in Europe.
