Notes
FRANCE – palm oil marketing: The French government assured Malaysia that domestic palm oil sales will not be subject to tax hikes on environmental or health grounds as recently considered in the French parliament (see MPPU Dec.’12). It was also made clear that under forthcoming EU regulations on mandatory declaration of product ingredients there would be no discrimination against palm oil (see also MPPU Apr.’13).
