KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 5 (Reuters) – Malaysia plans to implement its nationwide adoption of the B20 palm oil biofuel programme by the end of 2022, the country’s palm oil board said on Wednesday.

“We will do it stage-by-stage basis depending on the government’s financial capabilities,” Ravi Muthayah, the commodities ministry’s secretary general said during a seminar.
