Crude palm oil base import price ups to $739/tonne against $711/tonne while RBD palm oil base import price to $752/tonne against $721/tonne.

Pressure also seen on forecasts of rising output and declining export demand. Palm oil output in Malaysia, the world's second-largest producer of the tropical oil, is seen gaining in the second half of this year on seasonal demand and as it recovers from the crop-damaging effects of El Nino.
