KUALA LUMPUR, March 6 (Bernama) — The Ministry of Primary Industries led by the Secretary General, YBhg. Dato’ Dr. Tan Yew Chong is currently in Brussels, Belgium to participate in the StakeholderMeeting On High And Low Indirect Land Use Change (ILUC) Risk Biofuels Under The Recast Of The Renewable Energy Directive (EU RED II) on the 5thMarch 2019.  He is accompanied by the Ambassador of Malaysia to Belgium, H.E. Dato’ Hasnudin Hamzah and high level officials from the Ministry, Malaysian Palm Oil Board, Malaysian Palm Oil Council and Malaysian Palm Oil Certification Council.

The Ministry’s participation in the workshop is important to provide clear, accurate and scientific based information to stakeholders with regard to the Draft Delegated Regulation of the EU RED II. The Draft Delegated Regulation has been found to be lacking in transparency, scientific credibity and many of the assumptions therein fail to reflect the actual sustainable practices in the industry.
