While undergoing the process of transformation, the industry is facing the issues on labour and land availability that can hinder the sustainability of production growth. This paper will highlight the continuous Malaysian efforts in sustaining the production growth in future, focusing on increasing land productivity, replanting, promoting mechanization and increasing the skill of labour.

Dear En. Ramli, I have posed this question to En. Izham "...you (En. Izham) have forecasted/quoted that Malaysian CPO production in 2014 to be around 19.5 million tonnes whereas En. Ramli Abdullah (MPOB), it is forecast at 21.34 million tonnes. This is a huge differences of 1.84 million tonnes which can make or break the CPO price this year. What is your (En. Izham) basis for 19.5 million tonnes ?". In reply, I was asked by him to clarify the differences with you. En. Izham also mentioned that the 19.5 million tonnes quoted is derived based on MPOB data on expected mature area and average yield in 2014. I am confused. What is the official Malaysian CPO production forecast by MPOB in 2014? TQ
