KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 19, 2016: 

Growth in world palm oil output is expected to slow this year due to unfavourable crop weather and an overall decline in yields, a leading industry analyst said today.

A smaller rise in production could propel further gains in benchmark palm oil futures that are currently near a three-week top of RM2,495 per tonne.

KUALA LUMPUR: Indonesia will export lesser palm oil this year as it uses more of the commodity at home to blend into biodiesel, an industry group said, putting the country on track for its first drop in overseas sales of the tropical oil in five years.

The world’s top producer and exporter of palm oil is seen shipping out 23-24 million tonnes of the edible oil this year, said Fadhil Hasan, executive director of the Indonesian Palm Oil Association (GAPKI), as much as 9 percent below year-ago levels.

The government’s plan to extend the oversight authority of the State Logistics Agency (Bulog) from only over rice to 10 other food commodities, including sugar, cooking oil, beef, chicken, eggs, onions, chili and flour, should be supported with a strong and effective internal control system.

The new policy of extending Bulog’s oversight authority to so many important food staples could be grossly counterproductive if Bulog, notorious in the past as being a major source of corruption and a cash cow for politicians, is not subject to effective internal control or audit mechanisms.
