The Case for an EU-Malaysia Preferential Trade Agreement: Maintaining Market Access for Palm Oil and Addressing Anti-Competitive Practices
351
VIEWS
by Uthaya kumar
Negotiations for an EU-Malaysia Free Trade Agreement (EUMFTA) were launched at the end of 2010. However, after seven rounds of talks, the negotiating parties suspended trade talks in April 2012. In 2017, the EU noted that a stocktaking exercise was being undertaken to assess the prospect of resuming negotiations of the agreement during the course of 2017.

There is an increasing number of preferential trade agreements concluded by the EU, most recently with Singapore, Vietnam, Mexico, and Mercosur, among others. This means that Malaysia’s exports to the EU are increasingly coming under pressure having to compete with products benefitting from preferential market access. This puts Malaysia at a disadvantage vis-à-vis its competitors.
