 Malaysia cuts CPO export duty for June

The Star Online (16/05/2020) - PETALING JAYA: Malaysia has lowered its export duty on crude palm oil to 0% for June from 4.5% in May, the Malaysian Palm Oil Board said yesterday.

It said this by citing the national customs department.


The world’s second-largest producer and exporter of palm oil calculated a reference price of 2,122.77 ringgit per tonne.


There has been a slump in global demand of the edible oil as efforts to slow the spread of the coronavirus outbreak shuttered restaurants and curbed travel around the world.


Malaysia benchmark palm oil prices have plunged about 35% since the start of the year to trade at 2,130 ringgit per tonne on Thursday, hovering near 10-month lows. – Reuters
