He said as of June this year, palm oil-based products which were the biggest contributor with 43% of the total agri-commodities export, increased to RM46bil compared to RM33bil in the first six months last year.
However, he said palm oil-based products export quantity declined 5% to 11.5 million tonnes.
“Covid-19 pandemic continuously impacted palm oil production and exports not only in Malaysia but also other global palm oil producing countries.
“The implementation of the movement control order by the government up to the National Recovery Programme on a scheduled basis over the past six months has directly impacted the export of palm oil and agri-commodity-based products,” he said in a statement.
Following the encouraging performance, Mohd Khairuddin said he is optimistic that the RM75bil palm oil export target this year could be achieved even though the country is still facing a shortage of workers in oil palm plantations.Following the encouraging performance, Mohd Khairuddin said he is optimistic that the RM75bil palm oil export target this year could be achieved even though the country is still facing a shortage of workers in oil palm plantations.Meanwhile, he said rubber products that contributed 42% of the total agri-commodities export recorded a surge of 150% to RM44bil from RM17.77bil in the same period last year.
