Palm Oil Internet Seminar (POINTERS) is a web-based seminar concept where updates on developments in the oils and fats sector will be brought promptly to the industry circles, accessible at the click of a button from their own PC, mobile web or laptop wherever they are.
The idea is to bring about convenience, time and cost savings, as well as meaningful information sharing that connects everyone to the oils and fats industry efficiently and effectively. All papers will be posted on the site for one week and participants will be able to download the paper and post questions to the authors, who have lent their expertise, during that one week period.
Active participation from among the audience is expected to make the Internet Palm Oil Seminars more useful and meaningful. Register now and be the first to take advantage of valuable updates from the oils and fats industry in an innovative way.
Closing Remarks by: Tan Sri Datuk Dr.Yusof Basiron Chief Executive Officer, Malaysian Palm Oil Council Palm Oil Internet Seminar (POINTERS)
17 – 24 February 2014
We have come to the conclusion of another edition of the Palm Oil Internet Seminar or POINTERS. On behalf of the Malaysian Palm Oil Council (MPOC), I wish to thank all who have registered and participated in POINTERS, which was organised by MPOC.
For this edition, I am happy to note that the number of participants have increased tremendously. When we first organised POINTERS, there were less than 200 registered participants and now the number of participants has increased tremendously to 2,009 registered participants.
This proves that POINTERS is a programme that is looked forward to. In this edition of POINTERS, topics ranged from palm oil market price direction, soybean development and biodiesel development; all of which are very relevant and current issues.
There were a number of questions posed to the speakers and I believe that the speakers have responded to your queries. I believe that you have found the seminar to be innovative, informative and thought provoking. For this edition of POINTERS, we once again organised a Price Forecast Contest and the response has been very encouraging. We will announce the name of the winner of this contest very soon.
Once again, I wish to thank all participants who have posted questions and those who have taken part in the Price Forecast Contest. I would also like to thank all the speakers who have contributed their papers, without whom this seminar would not have been a success.
My heartfelt thanks are also extended to our sponsors, for their support and their recognition of our efforts through their generous sponsorship.
I look forward to your participation in the next POINTERS.
