Strong consumption growth for vegetable oils in general, and palm oil products in particular, coupled with limited vegetables oils production capabilities in the region, have been behind the increase in trade. further growth is anticipated in large part due to a strong regional GDP forecast. Palm oil is the most important imported oil in the region.
