About This Course

This webinar was recorded & hosted LIVE on 28th October 2021 by the Council Of Palm Oil Producing Countries (CPOPC).

  • How bright is the scope for millennials of diverse education levels?
  • Can smallholder plots survive through millennials?
  • Does millennial gender neutrality exist in the promotion ladder?


The webinar theme was conceived as a deep dive to extract the invisible barriers that preclude the minds of millennials in consideration for getting a footprint in the industry.

Among millennials in Malaysia, the industry is seemingly having little allure for them in seeking out a go-to job. The palm oil industry, for them, is seen to be stigmatized, from upstream to midstream to downstream. This stems from misconception, built upon adverse publicity.

From unpalatable labels over 3D (dirty, difficult, and dangerous) jobs, to calling out on industry pain points, palm oil is an industry with an ostensibly negative rub-off. To address and bring to fore the actual dimension, a panel was assembled, of eminent personalities from areas of planter, business and academia to provide views, opinions and assessments.



  • Eric Kiu Kwong Seng (Chief Operating Officer of Sarawak Oil Palms Berhad, Chairman of Sarawak Oil Palm Plantation Owners Association)
  • Datuk Haji Daud Amatzin (Chairman of The Incorporated Society of Planters, President of International Institute of Plantation Management, Adjunct Professor of Faculty of Plantation & Agro-Technology Universiti Teknologi MARA)
  • Professor Dato’ Dr Ahmad Ibrahim (Professor of Chemical Engineering UCSI University, Senior Advisor Malaysia of Fraunhofer Research Network Germany)

Council of Palm Oil Producing Countries (CPOPC) is an intergovernmental organization for palm oil producing countries. The Council was established on 21 November 2015, thanks to genuine awareness of the need of mutual cooperation among palm oil producing nations. Indonesia and Malaysia, the world’s biggest palm oil producers, are the founding father of the Council as well as the current members. The two countries recognized significant contribution of palm oil sector in generating export revenue, raising the income level of rural small farmers, addressing poverty, creating employment and new business opportunities.  As the two countries further accepted that palm oil is an important component of the global food supply chain, they recognized a few situations, primarily those relating to sustainable practices and trade impediments. Taking into account the given opportunities and challenges, the two countries desired to strengthen cooperation and collaboration by establishing the CPOPC. The Council is now inviting other palm oil producing countries from Africa, Central America and Asia-Pacific. The Council seeks to unite world’s palm oil producers. The Council, furthermore, represents the priorities, interests, and aspirations of the palm oil nations as developing world.
