KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 4 — The Ministry of Primary Industries (MPI) is raring to confront the  European Union (EU) on its palm oil discrimination, through filing Malaysia’s case with the World Trade Organisation (WTO).

Its minister Teresa Kok said MPI has enlisted the cooperation of the Attorney-General’s Chambers, Ministry of International Trade and Industry and Ministry of Foreign Affairs in studying the case, and preparing the relevant legal material.

“Given the importance of the palm oil industry to the country including socio-economic development of more than three million Malaysians involved in the industry, the government opined that Malaysia should take stronger measures against the EU which is seen to be discriminating against oil palm producing countries.”
