Indonesia will kill off palm oil plantation in Malaysia


With cheaper labor cost and no export duty in Indonesia definitely make its palm oil cheaper than Malaysia.

What Malaysia can do is to diverse its agriculture base than relying on palm oil and rubber to find another blue ocean.

Malaysians have to upgrade know-how and techniques in agriculture sector in order to compete with other countries. The old method used by my late father is too obsolete and ineffective to achieve high yield and quality at par with other international competitors.

The chili powder is ten times more value added than dry raw chili as sold by farmers. The manufacturers reap more profits than farmers.
