A Brief Introduction

The Malaysian Estate Owners’ Association was established in 1931. Its goal was to promote, foster and protect the interests of the plantation industry in Malaysia.

In 1941, like other groups, all the records of the association were lost in the chaos of World War II. So, on 26th January 1946, a public meeting was held at the Chinese Assembly Hall in Kuala Lumpur. It was at this meeting that the public decided to revive the MEOA; with the late Mr Khoo Teik Ee elected to become the first president of MEOA.

Eventually, the association was governed by its 1987 Constitution and By-Laws. Many years later, on 21 July 2016, the Constitution and By-Laws were revised with new rules approved by the Registrar of Societies Malaysia (ROS).

Today, MEOA continues to develop its identity, and build bridges by engaging other associations within the industry. Furthermore, the Association endeavours to continue keeping its members informed about the latest issues affecting the industry.
