This is considering that in less than one year, Indonesia's policy on palm oil export has created market uncertainties to major importing countries like India.

As stated by Indian Vegetable Oil Producers ’Association (IVPA) president Sudhakar Desai at the recent Malaysia International Agricommodity Expo and Summit (MIACES) 2022, Malaysia has kept its policy pertaining to palm oil trading in a stable manner, thus able to meet India's demand during the period of Indonesia’s ban on palm oil export.
