VIEW PROFILE
The year 2019 has been a better year for the Malaysian oil palm industry as compared to that of in the previous year. In 2019, improvements have been recorded in many key performance indicators such as crude palm oil (CPO) production, exports and palm oil stocks. In addition, palm oil price in the second half of 2019 has shown an impressive recovery, with December 2019 registered the highest price since March 2017. Overall in 2019, CPO production recorded an increase by 1.8% to 19.86 million tonnes as against 19.52 million tonnes recorded in 2018, attributable to improved productivity, both in fresh fruit bunch (FFB) production and CPO production. The FFB yield recorded an increase of 0.1% to 17.18 tonnes per hectare while oil extraction rate (OER) increased by 1.3% to 20.21%. In the global scenario, the wider CPO price discount as against its major competing oils in 2019, coupled with the supported market situation in the importing countries particularly in India, China and the EU had boosted exports of palm products, especially palm oil, palm kernel oil and biodiesel. All in all, total exports of oil palm products in 2019 were higher by 12.0%, amounting to 27.86 million tonnes as compared to 24.88 million tonnes exported in 2018. However, the weaker palm oil prices in the first half of 2019 had somewhat affected palm oil export revenue in 2019. Export revenue of total palm products for 2019 was at RM64.84 billion, lower by 4.0% as against RM67.52 billion in 2018. In line with the excellent export performance, closing stocks in December 2019 was down by 37.6% to 2.01 million tonnes vis-à-vis 3.22 million tonnes recorded in 2018. For the year 2020, Malaysian palm oil industry is forecast to perform better primarily driven by the expected firmer palm oil prices with palm oil demand is expected to remain stable to generate higher export revenue for the palm oil industry in 2020.

Your figures show that Malaysian planted area increased in 2019. This indicates that there are new land available for old palm cultivation. Can you explain the source of the new land? Where can those land be found in Malaysia? Please explain why Sabah planted area fell in 2019?
