    Indonesia has announced plans to subsidise bulk cooking oil using the CPO export levy and scrap the ceiling price on branded cooking oil from 1 Apr. This could mean the domestic price obligation (DPO) would be discontinued and the domestic market obligation (DMO) would be relaxed after 1 Apr 2022. This is likely positive for Indonesian planters/exporters/cooking oil producers and negative for Malaysian producers due to potentially lower CPO prices.
