This wish list for the oil palm sector is submitted by the Malaysian Estate Owners’ Association (MEOA). MEOA members own about 1.2 million ha of planted oil palm, or 20% of the total cultivated oil palm area in Malaysia. Our members’ holdings are mainly small and medium-sized plantations, some privately held and some held through listed companies, and they extend through the peninsula, Sabah and Sarawak.

As the new government takes shape, the Malaysian Estate Owners' Association (MEOA) has called for a ministry dedicated to the plantation industry, separate from the Ministry of Agriculture, with a main focus on palm oil as it is the nation's most important plantation commodity crop.
