“The predicted revenue of RM348 million for this yr is an estimate primarily based on extended CPO prices due to the fact June.

“We desire that with manufacturing and demand, as well as good weather conditions, it isn’t always not possible that it (the providence profit levy) can attain approximately RM500 million next 12 months whilst the u . S . A . Faces financial demanding situations,” he advised a press convention here nowadays.
