This is the point exactly. What about our own people? Macam mana pula dengan nasib orang kita sendiri? Kalaulah India tidak mahu membeli 3.9 juta tan minyak sawit dari Malaysia, bagaimana pula nasib peneroka kelapa sawit dan pekebun kecil kelapa sawit?
And here is the latest development in Europe. The French have already decided to ban the use of palm oil for biofuels. This was not supposed to be "voted upon by the European Union" until the middle of 2020 but the French have already gone ahead and banned palm oil as a biofuel component.
Here is the news :
PARIS (Reuters) - France’ on Fri upheld law excluding palm oil from biofuel scheme
legislation removes palm oil from biofuels from Jan 2020 and eliminate related tax advantages
constitutional court said law in line with environmental protection
considering strong growth of palm oil production and major amount of land used for production worldwidedeforestation and drying out of peat bogs
EU also plans to restrict palm oil in biofuel due to environmental impact
Under French 2019 budget, tax exemptions for palm oil will end on Jan. 1, 2020law specifies palm oil cannot be considered a biofuel Tax exemptions for other biofuels remain in place.
My comments : This is supposed to be about 600,000 tonnes or more (for the whole of the EU).
European roadways are highly connected and European fuel refineries do not have to worry about border controls. Fuel trucks and trains just deliver fuel everywhere across Europe. Well not anymore. If fuel trucks carry palm oil based biofuels they are going to have problems driving into France. Meaning since the French have banned palm oil for biofuel, the rest of the EU will follow suit.
This is not the fault of Malaysia. But neither is it the time for finger pointing or passing blame. These are simply realities. Keadaan semasa dunia. These are facts. How are we going to deal with these realities? This is a real situation.
Dr Mahathir says we cannot 'confront' the Chinese because they are too powerful.
Hmm . . .so the Uyghurs will have to wait.
Here is my suggestion. Does anyone remember Tibet?
It seems like Tibet is doing quite well. The Chinese have dragged Tibet into the 21st century.
We know best how to handle our country. Buy Bukan Islam Last, make people disappear in the night, make official nasty comments about other countries.
So in the same way other countries also know how to handle themselves.
