    Malaysia says EU palm oil curbs lack scientific proof, breach WTO rules

    A European Union proposal to limit the use of palm oil lacks comprehensive scientific evidence and breaches global trade rules, Malaysia's marketing agency for the edible oil said on Friday. Malaysia, the world's second largest palm oil-producing country, which accounts for two-fifths of global production, has along with world number one Indonesia and other producing countries challenged the EU move announced in January last year. The European Commission wants to phase out the use of palm oil in motor fuel because it says its cultivation leads to deforestation.

    Higher demand, declining reserves to support palm oil prices -analyst Fry

    Palm oil prices are likely to be supported in 2019 by rising consumption, falling inventories and slowing growth in production of the edible oil, a leading industry analyst told Reuters on Tuesday. Malaysian palm oil futures slipped almost 8 percent in February amid worries over declining demand, but analyst James Fry expects appetite to be stoked as more of the commodity is used in biofuels. Biodiesel production is forecast to use 12-13 million tonnes of crude palm oil this year, up from about 10 million tonnes last year, said Fry.

    Global 2019 palm oil demand set for first contraction in two decades

    World palm oil demand may suffer its first contraction in two decades during the 2019/20 crop year due to rising domestic oilseed supplies in top buyer India and slowing demand in Europe and China, industry participants told Reuters. Indian traders expect flat to slightly larger palm oil imports this year against a backdrop of record oilseed production that should boost domestic edible oil supplies. In the European Union, the world's second-largest palm oil importer, buyers are avoiding the oil because of concerns of alleged environmental damage from palm cultivation, while the Washington-Beijing trade war has caused uncertainty over demand potential in the third-largest market in China.

    China soybean traders dismiss market jitters over U.S. cancellations

    Soybean traders in China on Friday shrugged off recent cancellations of import orders as "old business", even as the global market worried it could be a sign of Beijing backtracking on its pledge to buy more American beans. China, the world's top soybean buyer, sharply reduced its purchases of the oilseed from the United States from mid-2018, after Beijing hit the commodity with duties of 25 percent in a tit-for-tat trade war with Washington. The U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) weekly export sales report on Thursday, though, showed net cancellations of U.S. soybeans in the week ended on Jan. 3.
