M’sia will scramble to find new buyers for their products

India buys more than nine million tonnes of palm oil annually
Indonesia  world’s biggest producer of palm oil

My comments :  

I think this will have an impact on our palm oil. But maybe not immediately. 

Say India will now buy more CPO from Indonesia.  Unless Indonesian production can increase overnite this means Indonesia will have less palm oil to sell to its other markets.

So Indonesia’s other buyers will be looking for CPO. They will have to source it from jeng jeng jeng Malaysia. 

But  our palm oil refiners may suffer if the   demand for unrefined crude palm oil increases.  Local refineries may suffer over capacity.

There is an easy solution for all this – just keep your mouth shut.
