The association will act accordingly not to have oil shortage problems and to distribute the quality oil at an affordable price to the consumers. 

There is no need to spark concern for the edible oil shortage in the country, Myanmar Edible Oil Dealers’ Association released a statement on 15 July.
The association is working together with the related departments and organizations to ensure the safety and self-sufficiency of oil and distribute the edible oil at a fair price to the consumers, as per the statement.
Myanmar Edible Oil Dealers’ Association takes steps in order to avoid unnecessary issues regarding edible oil amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
In a bid to contain the spread of the COVID-19, the State Administration Council declared a period from 17 to 25 July as the official public holiday. However, only the major businesses, including fuel oil, drinking water, fish, meat and food products, pharmaceuticals and medical supplies, are allowed to be opened during that period, according to the Central Committee on Prevention, Control and Treatment of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).
The association will act accordingly not to have oil shortage problems and to distribute the quality oil at an affordable price to the consumers.  Moreover, quality oil imports from foreign countries will be allowed for self-sufficiency. And ship unloading will be implemented. The association will undertake filling oil tanks and distributing the oil to wholesalers and retailers on public holidays.
The domestic consumption of edible oil is estimated at 1 million tonnes per year. The local cooking oil production is just about 400,000 tonnes. About 700,000 tonnes of cooking oil are yearly imported, primarily from Malaysia and Indonesia, to meet the self-sufficiency in the domestic market. — NN/GNLM
