Dassault AND Eurofighter Consortium furious over EU ban on Malaysian palm oil
A European Union ban on importing palm oil into Europe threatens to block Malaysia’s purchase of defence equipment from France, the UK, Sweden, and Italy. France is opposing the ban, which could hinder both the Dassault and Eurofighter consortium’s offers of fighter jets. The UK is instead offering Malaysia export credit and industrial participation.
