Putrajaya to fight discrimination against its agricommodity sector

THE government will fight against discriminatory trade practices against Malaysia’s agricommodity sector, says Deputy Prime Minister and Plantation and Commodities Minister Fadillah Yusof.

As a producing and trading country, Malaysia is deeply concerned about laws against not only its palm oil, but also other main commodities such as timber, cocoa, and rubber, said Fadillah, who is on a Malaysia-Indonesia joint trade mission to the European Union (EU) to defend the palm oil industry following the activation of the European Union Deforestation Regulation (EUDR).
